New global maps of the Köppen-Geiger climate classification at an unprecedented 1-km resolution for the present day (1980–2016) and for projected future conditions (2071–2100) under climate change. The maps are stored in GeoTIFF format as unsigned 8-bit integers. We also provide a legend file (legend.txt) linking the numeric values in the maps to the Köppen-Geiger climate symbols.

Please cite the following paper when using the maps in any publication:
