Make your own Map with the Map Generator

This mapgenerator allows you to generate a map from our Database containing large amounts of Geographic data regarding Climate and Hydrology. The maps are generated using the current content of the database but are of high quality. Such functionality is rare on the internet were quick and small resolution maps are the standard. Enjoy the maps and color your walls and corridors. The maps are projected in Lambert Equal Area and go from the North Cape to the Canary Islands and from the Azores to the Ural.
Two new positions are available at the JRC Drought Team concerning Drought Risk Assessment and Drought Impact. You can find more details here: Drought Impact, Drought Risk Assessment, JRC recruitment page (see Space, Security and Migration section). The deadline is 13/07/2020.
