CLIMsystems has secured a place as finalists for the 2014 Esri Global Disaster Resilience App Challenge, where they created a web application for sea level rise along coastal cities. It exposes information from global climate models combined with datasets on vertical land movement on a local level, and shows this with local population density information offering opportunities for data presentation previously unavailable to a wide audience. The app is available now to use for free at http://slr-cities.climsystems.com/.
CLIMsystems was highly commended for their project CMIP5 Data Services: Developing and Applying a Tool for Extreme Sea Level Rise Analysis and Coastal Inundation Mapping in the Climate Change Resilience Category, at the recent IPWEA conference. They were runners up in their category, after their RPS partners, and awarded the Sustainable Solutions in Public Works.
CLIMsystems was acknowledged as Silver Partners with Esri, and developers of high quality climate and marine add-ins for ArcGIS, where they received a Special Achievement award in GIS. This award recognises the vision, leadership, hard work and innovative use of Esri’s geographic information system (GIS) technology.
CLIMsystems was recognised for achieving a leading position in the climate change risk and adaptation assessment industry. Evidence of the firm's accomplishment in this regard can be seen in the extensive citation of models generated with the company's SimCLIM software.
Richard Warrick, a Director of CLIMsystems Ltd., was awarded the prize of Innovator of the Year in the category of Agriculture and Environment at the Bayer-National Business Review ceremony in Auckland in August of 2009. This award is designed to identify the country’s best and brightest innovators and represents the culmination of 15 years of research and development for SimCLIM software, a system used to model current and future climates to determine the impact of climate change.
