Probabilistic climate predictions come with a new set of challenges for end users: information is often untailored, hard to understand and apply in a decision-making context. One of the objectives of the prototype is to develop a user-friendly interface to show seasonal predictions tailored to users expectations and needs. Project Ukko is the product of the close collaboration between cutting-edge science and big data graphic designers. The aim is to showcase a visualizing tool to provide new perspectives on how to integrate seasonal predictions into sector-relevant formats.
The visualization interface provides global information of the wind speed predictions of the RESILIENCE prototype. The operational wind speed prediction for winter 2015/2016 (December 2015, January and February 2016) is available on-line.
The official launch of the webpage will be in January 2016 when the information will be open without password protection.
