I am currently writing my thesis on how temperature affects mortality in Europe.
I obtained an excellent dataset from the Eurostat Database containing weekly Mortality numbers on NUTS1 level (regions). It is important that my data fits this NUTS1 specification (Germany for instance has 16 NUTS1 regions).
So far I've only been able to find daily data from weather stations where the frequency is way too high for my research.
I could do with daily data for NUTS1, NUTS2, or even NUTS3 (Germany is divided into 400 of these).
But when the data is from stations the task of getting data and matching it to coordinates seems a bit much.
I heard something about a software called QGis that can match stations to coordinates but that is not something I have experience doing though.
Any help is much appreciated
