The method called“TR3S”adjusts multi-dimensional characteristics of the various data sets and can produce more accurate predictions than a conventional method which requires the analysis of a massive amount of data. The predictions can be used as the risk assessment for development of regional planning, and references for the local health, environment and agriculture industries. The company looks to exploring cross-sectional business opportunities through the website “NK Clim Vault”offering the data for free. (2020/02/06)
