Customize It!

The Climate Web utilizes TheBrain software, an advanced knowledge management platform that allows information to be “sliced and diced” in all kinds of ways. The Climate Web contains more than 100,000 thoughts linked in more than 400,000 ways, each thought and link individually created by the Climatographers.

The Climate Web represents 20,000 hours of climate information curation, and is the closest thing today to a collective climate intelligence. Think of the more than 100,000 individually curated thoughts in the Climate Web, each representing a document, an image, an idea, a website, or some other piece of information, as actionable climate knowledge LEGO bricks. The Climate Web can can be explored as one massive LEGO structure, or through hundreds of smaller-scale actionable climate knowledge LEGO kits. We can even customize new kits to your needs.
