epijim/raincpc: Obtain and Analyze Rainfall data from the Climate Prediction Center (CPC)
Version 0.1

The Climate Prediction Center's (CPC, www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov) daily rainfall data for the entire world, from 1979 to the present, at a resolution of 50 km (0.5 degrees lat-lon), is one of the few high quality and long-term observation-based rainfall products available for free. Data is available at CPC's ftp site (ftp.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/precip/CPC_UNI_PRCP/GAUGE_GLB/). However, obtaining and processing the data is not straightforward - there are too many files and file formats and file extensions have changed over time. This package provides functionality to download and process the raw data from CPC.
