CHIRPS FAQ's

What is the spatial resolution of CHIRPS?

     Chirps is produced at 0.05 x 0.05 degree spatial resolution
     For daily Africa data we also provide a 2.5 x 2.5 degree spatial resolution product

What are the spatial domain available for CHIRPS?

     Global         50N-50S, 180E-180W  @0.05 deg resolution = maps 7200x2000 pixels
     Africa         40N-40S   20E-55W   @0.05 deg resolution = maps 1500x1600 pixels

What are the time steps available for CHIRPS?

     pentad
     dekad
     monthly
     daily   (for Africa)

What are the file formats available for CHIRPS?

     .tif
     .bil

What is the latency of the CHIRPS product?

     There is a rapid, gts-only, CHIRPS available 2 days after the end of a pentad
     Final CHIRPS (all station data) is available sometime after the 15th of the following month. 

What is the temporal range for CHIRPS?

     CHIRPS is available from 1981 to near-real time
     The first couple of years are of lesser quality due to large gaps in the B1 IR data for that time period. 
     People using CHIRPS for hydrological modeling may choose to start later than 1981.
