Cal-Adapt has been designed to provide access to the wealth of data and information that has been and continues to be, produced by the State of California's scientific and research community. The data available on this site offer a view of how climate change might affect California at the local level. Here you can work with visualization tools, access data, and participate in community sharing to contribute your own knowledge. Cal-Adapt's development is a key recommendation of the 2009 California Climate Adaptation Strategy. The site has been developed by UC Berkeley's Geospatial Innovation Facility (GIF) with funding and advisory oversight by the  California Energy Commission and California Strategic Growth Council. The data used within the Cal-Adapt visualization tools have been gathered from California's scientific community, and represent peer-reviewed, high-quality science.
