For local and regional governments, the Atlas constitutes an excellent basis for climate stress tests. Furthermore, the Atlas is of relevance for, e.g., educational establishments, college and university students, businesses, and residents. The Climate Impact Atlas is based on national data and can be used free of charge. The Climate Impact Atlas has adopted the same climate impact categorisation as the Delta Plan on Spatial Adaptation, viz., a four-theme structure: flooding, waterlogging, drought, and heat. In addition to providing a basic impression of how the changing climate may affect the Netherlands, now and in the future, the Atlas also contains context maps, such as soil maps and maps indicating potential opportunities. The zoom feature enables users to zoom in on their own municipality. How can you use the map narratives? The map narratives provide background information to the main maps. They tell you what you see on the maps and help you to set to work with the information. The Atlas comprises five map narratives: Flooding, Drought, Waterlogging, Heat, and Basic Maps.
