This dataset includes a compilation of Tropical cyclones best tracks 1969-2009.
It is based on two sources:
1) IBTrACS v02r01 (1969 - 2008, http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/ibtracs/), year 2009 completed by online data from JMA, JTWC, UNISYS, Meteo France and data sent by Alan Sharp from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology . 2) A GIS modeling based on an initial equation from Greg Holland, which was further modified to take into consideration the movement of the cyclones through time.
This product was designed by UNEP/GRID-Europe for the Global Assessment Report on Risk Reduction (GAR). It was modeled using global data.
