In a time of global change and global resource constraints the academic community is constantly seeking new ways of communicating current research to inform the public and create a basis for decision making on an individual to global scale. For climate researchers; this challenge is pertinent; given the vast amount of information regarding issues; such as emissions; scenarios; trends; risks and options for mitigation and adaptation that flows through media every day. To create a solid representation of research data and scenarios as well as what impacts of climate change could imply in different regions; climate researchers have over the past years started to collaborate with designers and researchers within the field of visualization. Applications assisting data analysis as well as geospatial and abstract visual representations bear great potential for future research and science communication. We are referring to this transdisciplinary field of research and science communication as climate visualization.
