PS1.: you should have python installed. If not go to Pyhton.org to freely install yours"
PS2.: It is advised to install a simple text editor. Notepad++ is good option
Although you could compare, you should not expect "good" match", specially at fine temporal scales (e.g. daily). You should interpret the data as trends
The fine scale data is available for modelling purposes. This data SHOULD NOT be used for calibrating models, but rather to use to compare projections (with models already calibrated with real data) comparing usage of current and future climate and observe the differences
See FAQ #1. The data retrieved from these datasets should not be comparable to observed data, especially AR4 datasets. The data should be used only for comparing current vs future simulations with whatsoever model (e.g. forest, agriculture) you are using with climate as driving force to observe differences in results (e.g. yields). Nevertheless, the newer AR5 datasets (historical dataset), provides a closer representation (see Katragkou et al., 2015; Kotlarski et al., 2014; Prein et al., 2015)
This tool was initially developed under the EU Project AGFORWARD where agroforestry models are being used to project outputs from these systems. YieldSAFE and HiSAFE. Each model has an input format for climate. YieldSAFE format will produce columns 'MeanTemp, Radiation, Rain'. HiSAFE format will produce 'MaxTemp, MinTemp, MaxRelHum, MinRelHum, Radiation, Rain, WinsSpeed'
Yes. This is a reported issue. For the moment try other browser like Firefox or Chrome
Try to zoom in with the top left zooming tools of the map and in intermediate steps drag the icon to the desired location. The tool will select data from the nearest point in the dataset (where the cloud icons are). The description of the location, e.g. Gubbio, is retrieved from Google and reports to the location of the red marker. If you want to try to retrieve exactly the same data, the CSV output provides in the first line a link where you can retrieve the same data (without having to come back to CliPick). Since October 2016, a search by location box was added. Furthermore, each double click allows not only to zoom but to relocate the pin.
