Welcome to the 2020 Climate Informatics Data Challenge !

Important: Read the terms and conditions before agreeing to participate.

This year’s data challenge will focus on the prediction of visible imagery at night using thermal infra-red (IR) observations. The overall ambition is to generate predicted visible imagery with sufficient quality such that existing data products that rely on daytime data can be extended to 24 hours.
