raincpc: Obtain and Analyze Rainfall Data from the Climate Prediction Center

The Climate Prediction Center's (CPC) global rainfall data, 1979 to present, 0.5 degree (or 50 km) resolution, is one of the few high quality, long term, observation based, daily rainfall products available for free. Although raw data is available at CPC's ftp site, obtaining, processing and visualizing the data is not easy since there are over 12000 files and formats and names of these files have changed over time. This package provides functionality to download, process and visualize over 35 years of global daily rainfall data from CPC. The vignette demonstrates the use of this package, including the extraction and display of regional rainfall data.
