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.
