Rainfall estimates from rain gauge and satellite observations (CHIRPS pentad dataset)

CHIRPS is an abbreviation for Climate Hazards Group InfraRed Precipitation with Station Data (Version 2.0 final). The CHIRPS is a 30+ year quasi-global rainfall dataset and incorporates 0.05° resolution satellite imagery with in-situ station data to create gridded rainfall time series for trend analysis and seasonal drought monitoring. The data of the CHIRPS pentad is derived from Google Earth Engine with earth engine snippet as . With the dataset in a global format, it is clipped with the Cambodia boundary and generated the data visualized chart through the obtained data.
