     3== Introduction ==
     4This Blue Print outlines enhancements needing to be made to Sahana Eden as part of the ''Climate Data Digitization and Downscaling of Climate Change Projections for Nepal'' project with the [http:www/adpc.net Asia Disaster Preparedness Center]. As part of this project Sahana Eden will be used to develop a web portal which will share observed and modelled climate data.
     5
     6== Specification ==
     7''Under Development''
     8=== Data ===
     9The Web Portal will store the following climate data for Nepal:
     10 * Type of Climate Data
     11  * Observed Station Data
     12  * Observed Gridded Data
     13  * Projected Data
     14   * Type of Model & Projection
     15 * Parameters
     16 * Temperature
     17  * Rainfall
     18  * Snowfall
     19  * Wind Speed
     20  * Solar radiation
     21  * Estimated River Discharge (possible?)
     22  * Evaporation
     23  * Humidity
     24 * Statistics (Will these be calculated by the models or the web portal?)
     25  * Average
     26  * Max (what period would this be for? Any selected duration?)
     27  * Min (what period would this be for? Any selected duration?)
     28This data will be provided in NetCDF format which will be imported into the Web Portal.
     29=== Information Products ===
     30The Nepal Climate Portal will have to produce different information products to cater to the needs of different users. Technical experts and professionals will need raw data for  their own analysis while other professionals, government officials policymakers and planners will want analyzed products such as maps and charts. The Nepal Climate Portal will provide the following based on specific queries:
     31 * Raw Climate Data in netCDF and Excel (where appropriate) formats
     32 * Maps showing climate variables in GIF or PNG image formats.
     33 * Plots of climate parameters (Which can be downloaded in GIF or PNG image formats).
     34=== Features ===
     35==== Home Page ====
     36What should be displayed on the Home Page?
     37
     38==== Querying Climate Data ====
     39The user will be able to query the data and information products they require from a form where they can enter the following criteria:
     40 * Type of Climate Data (Historic/Projected)
     41  * Compare
     42 * Type of Model (GCM/RCM/ SRES ) & Projection
     43  * Compare
     44 * Location/Region
     45  * Districts (need boundary files)
     46  * River Basins (need boundary files)
     47 * Date (Range)
     48 * Period (for Statistics)
     49 * Parameter
     50 * Statistics
     51  * Mean, Average, Max, Min, Standard Deviation,
     52 * Information Product
     53
     54==== Purchasing of Observed Data ====
     55Some of the historical climate data information products will only be accessible for purchase. The Nepal Climate Web Portal will include information on pricing options, and functionality for offline payment as well as a Nepali and international payment gateway.
