ClimateEx (Climate Explorer) is an interactive web application for around the globe exploration of spatio-temporal changes in climate by means of the Climate Similarity Search . The user selects a location in the world and the point in time, examines a climatogram corresponding to this selection, selects a target point in time, and issues a query. In response to the query, ClimateEx generates a world-wide similarity map with colors encoding a degree of similarity between a query climate and local climates at the selected target time. With ClimateEx you can explore spatial variability of present-day climate and inspect climate trends without direct references to the numerical values of climatic variables.
