Cal-Adapt User Survey
) hosts tools and information that show how climate change is predicted to affect California. Cal-Adapt aims to serve a wide range of audiences and be particularly useful to planners, scientists, and other public servants.
The Cal-Adapt team continually strives to make its climate data visualizations, interpretation, and download tools more useful. This survey will expand the Cal-Adapt team's understanding of who uses Cal-Adapt and for what purposes, to expand the tools available, build a seamless user experience, and support climate change adaptation across California.
We anticipate that this survey will take 5 to 10 minutes. Though not required, we encourage you to fill out all questions.
