Intellectual Ventures provided us a 1-km gridded estimation of rainfall, relative humidity and mean air temperature.
If you are having any question regarding the methods or else, feel free to get in touch with Edward Wenger from their labs at email@example.com
As part of the Challenge, Teralab will provide computing power to 5 projects (including at least two based in Senegal) that have been previously selected.
If you want to use resources made available by Teralab:
- register to the Challenge on the site: http://d4d.orange.com/en/participate
- submit your project
- send a description of your project and your needs at firstname.lastname@example.org
Teralab will then make a selection on technical criteria independently from the organizers of the Challenge:
- Eligibility restricted to the African continent, and at least 2 Senegalese teams
- Criteria for selection if more than 5 candidates: current capacity available to the team, volume of the data set (including external data from their care). No 'relevance' criterion will be applied to the project.
The validation schedule provided is as follows:
- August 15th: 1st teams validated on the basis of applications received before August 8, 2014
- August 31st: Last validated teams
The CSE has environmental databases and document collections comprising:
