Blended Index The Blended Index (BI) is a model which employs multiple potential indicators of drought and excess moisture (such as Palmer values, rolling precipitation amounts and soil moisture to name a few) and combines them into a weighted, normalized value between 0 and 100.The inputs and weights used in this model are subject to change from time to time as it is optimized to best represent extent, duration and severity of impactful weather conditions. 2017-05-05 2019-08-26 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada agri-geomatics-agrog@agr.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyBIagclimateFarmlandsCropsAgricultureTemperaturePrecipitation Data Product Specification (English)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcAgClimate/en/ISO_19131_AgClimate_-_Data_Product_Specification.pdf Data Product Specification (French)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcAgClimate/fr/Donnees_agroclimat_-_SPC.pdf Agroclimate Interactive Maps (English)HTML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/agclimate Agroclimate Interactive Maps (French)HTML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/agclimat Pre-packaged GeoTIF files (No linguistic component)GeoTIF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/cli/agClimate/tif/bi/ Using AAFC Climate ServicesPDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcAgClimate/en/Using_AAFC_Climate_Services.pdf Blended IndexESRI REST https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/app_agclimate_agclimat/agclimate_bi/ImageServer Blended IndexWMS https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/services/app_agclimate_agclimat/agclimate_bi/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS
