Taiwan Climate Change Projection Information and Adaptation Knowledge Platform (TCCIP) is a new integrated climate change service platform to provide comprehensive climate change data, information, knowledge services for governments, research, industries and the public (GRIP) in Taiwan. The platform provides user-friendly service which was developed through the design thinking method. Design thinking is different from the traditional design method. It is based on the “people-oriented” as the starting point. From the perspective of the needs of use, and considering the user’s using behavior, while considering the feasibility of technology and business, the product can be designed to meet the needs of the user and that the user wants to use. This design approach is in line with the concept of Co-Design. It makes the integrated platform which provide climate change relevant data, information, and knowledge to meet the needs of decision makers and academic research teams. In order to understand what kind of climate service that users really need, we analysed user needs and usage behavior through users’ forums, user questionnaire feedback and discussion.
TCCIP provides the easy understand information of observed changing climate and projected downscaled changing climate, such as climate change index atlas. Not only providing figures but also providing data, TCCIP makes climate change data and information acquirement easier than ever. The Climate Change Data Store provides climate change data like a shopping website. Some data were made to data API to provide user to develop tools on their own websites or App for mobile phone. The new platform is still under construction and will be published this July.
The English version of the new platform will be built and demonstrated for ECCA before May 15.
