Bioclimatic Applications and Bioclimatic Data Base

(by S.Rivas-Sáenz)


Overview -  Development -  Java -  Web Design -  Cartography -  Diagnosis -  Statistics
1992-2003:
Professor Ángel Penas Merino (University of León, Spain) and Professor Miguel Ángel Luengo Ugidos (University of Salamanca, Spain)  program the Diagnosis Applications (BIO-1.BAS, BIO-2.BAS, BIO-3.BAS,BIO-4.BAS, BIO-5.BAS, BIO-6.BAS, BIO-7.BAS & DATA-4.BAS) in Borland® Turbo Basic language, for MS-DOS. This applications are completed by the program CLIMA.exe, written in CA-Clipper by S.Rivas-Sáenz.
1992-2005:
Under the coordination of Professor Angel Penas Merino 5000 climate stations where added to the main research. Thanks to Professor Mª Luisa López (University of Navarra, Spain) and thanks to Doctor Angel Férnández Cancio (Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Agrarias, Spain) our data base is increased by another 6500 stations. Another 8500 climate stations have been also provided by different Organizations and US Universities for research purposes.
1996-2005:
S.Rivas-Sáenz writes the web site www.ucm.es/info/cif (since 1996) also than the web site www.globalbioclimatics.org (from 2000). Both similar designs pretend to be as simple and as clear as possible, which suppose to limit  their HTML to version 3, and have particularly follow the examples of the "Climate Diagram World Atlas, CD-Series I", also than the classic forums of debate.
2000-2003:
With the encouragement of Professor Helmut Lieth (University of Osnabrueck, Germany) and the technique orientation of the "Climate Diagram World Atlas, CD-Series I of Climate and Biosphere, 1st edit.: H.Lieth, J.Berlekamp, S.Fuest, S. Riediger", S.Rivas-Saénz programs the first version of the Global Bioclimatic Belts project (written in Visual Basic & Visual C), which has included the following programs:
  • GbbBioc, which is similar to the current GbcBiocBeta. (published)
  • GbbAdmin, with all the data base tools (which includes a similar program to the current GbcInputBeta). (partially published).
  • GbbGisCD, that builds 90% of our web sites also than a multimedia publication, similar to the current  GbcGisCdBeta (not published). 
  • GboData is the library that holds all the bioclimatic applications  BIO-2.BAS, BIO-3.BAS,BIO-4.BAS, BIO-5.BAS, BIO-6.BAS & BIO-7.BAS.
  • GBC & GbcCommon: it is the launcher (and its graphic library) of a multimedia publication, similar to the current GbcBeta and  GbcMap (not published).
2003-2005:
S. Rivas-Sáenz programs a completely new version  of the Global Bioclimatic Belts project entirely written in Visual C (which particularly includes the new bioclimatic applications). From this new source codes he is able to build the Java Applets that hold the bioclimatic stations of both web sites, also than the beta version of GbcBiocBeta and GbcInputBeta (published from June 2004).

Our Bioclimatic Data Base is a climatic collection that comes from the most prestigious climatic centers and publications around the world (books and electronic books), its datasets are continuously checked inside the bioclimatic research. (Information updated the 10 January 2007)
