Abstract:
New-ID: NBI161 The Climate Dataset of Senegal documentation Files: SENEGAL4.IMG Code: 146005-001 SENEGAL5.IMG 146006-001 SENEGAL6.IMG 146007-001 Raster Members IMG files are in IDRISI format The Senegal Climate Dataset was originally digitized for the UNEP/FAO/ESRI Database for Africa from hand-drawn maps provided by FAO for the Desertification Hazard Mapping project. GRID-Geneva rasterized the coverages for UNEP/GRID/WHO/CISFAM Senegal Database with a cell size of 30 seconds and two minutes lat/lon (approximately one- and four kilometeter-square pixels, respectively). Contact: UNEP/GRID-Nairobi, P.O. Box 30552 Nairobi, Kenya FAO, Soil Resources, Management and Conservation Service, 00100, Rome, Italy The SENEGAL4 file shows mean annual wind velocity meters per second (8 classes). The SENEGAL5 file shows number of wet days per year (6 classes). The SENEGAL6 file shows mean annual rainfall in millimeters (10 classes). REMARK: file may have limited applicability at national scale as was extracted from continental. References: ESRI. Final Report UNEP/FAO World and Africa GIS data base (1984).
