This application uses rainfall and temperature data from the Climate Research Unit (http://www.cru.uea.ac.uk/) and calculates monthly climatology and trend of rainfall or temperature over a rectangular region selected by the user.
- The region to be selected is made rectangular for simplicity for the user as clicking any two opposite corners is enough to create a rectangular region.
The App also helps to quickly check how climate is changing over a given region or country.
