World - Air Temperature at 2m Above Ground Level (TEMP) GIS Data, (Global Solar Atlas), Global Solar Atlas

Primary tabs

Developed by SOLARGIS (https://solargis.com) and provided by the Global Solar Atlas (GSA), this data resource contains air temperature at 2m above ground level in °C covering the globe. Data is provided in a geographic spatial reference (EPSG:4326). The resolution (pixel size) of solar resource data (GHI, DIF, GTI, DNI) is 9 arcsec (nominally 250 m), PVOUT and TEMP 30 arcsec (nominally 1 km) and OPTA 2 arcmin (nominally 4 km).

The data is hyperlinked under 'resources' with the following characteristics:
TEMP - GISdata (GeoTIFF)
Data format: GEOTIFF
File size : 121.03 MB

There are two temporal representation of solar resource and PVOUT data available:
• Longterm yearly/monthly average of daily totals (LTAym_AvgDailyTotals)
• Longterm average of yearly/monthly totals (LTAym_YearlyMonthlyTotals)

Both type of data are equivalent, you can select the summarization of your preference. The relation between datasets is described by simple equations:
• LTAy_YearlyTotals = LTAy_DailyTotals * 365.25
• LTAy_MonthlyTotals = LTAy_DailyTotals * Number_of_Days_In_The_Month

*For data provided in AAIGrid please see: https://globalsolaratlas.info/download/world.

For more information and terms of use, please, read metadata, provided in PDF and XML format for each data layer in a download file. For other data formats, resolution or time aggregation, please, visit Solargis website. Data can be used for visualization, further processing, and geo-analysis in all mainstream GIS software with raster data processing capabilities (such as open source QGIS, commercial ESRI ArcGIS products and others).
