Different systems collect condition monitoring observations using a common seven-point dry-to-wet scale to capture what they see at a specific place and time.
We systematically scan news stories, looking for "a loss or change at a specific place and time due to drought," providing a preliminary historic record and sometimes insight on emerging conditions.
The Visual Drought Atlas is a way to compare the appearance of different landscapes over time, in dry, wet and normal years.
