This project was commissioned by the International Institute of Tropical Forestry (IITF). IITF is located in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico, and is part of the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service. IITF was interested in solving the problem of making climatic data collected in the Luquillo Experimental Forest readily available to the public. Data was incomplete and also difficult for the public to access. IITF wanted the information to be accessible through the web. This IQP team analyzed all data through the use of statistical analysis software (SAS). Then the information was placed on the web where all users can access it.
