I'm trying to get annual mean temperature and annual precipitation for Spain by province. I've tried going through NOAA, AEMET, and a few other resources but I'm having a hard time getting data in a format I can understand or utilize.
AEMET keeps giving me tar.gz files filled with a file that has no type. I haven't had any luck getting that into anything usable and don't even know if its supposed to be a shapefile, an .e00 or what.
I don't necessarily need the data in a GIS format. I just want something that I can easily convert or aggregate to a by province format which I could then join to a province shapefile I have.
I saw this community linked in a GIS stackExchange answer and am hoping it can help me with this.
