Map of the Week - World Climate Zones

Having just spent some time in a (thankfully) different climate zone, I've been interested in world climate zone maps. In geography class we all studied the Koppen Climate Classification. This map is fairly well done and has a nice legend that explains the complicated classifications well. Unfortunately you can't zoom in to see exactly what's happening in your favorite vacation spot.

Scribd has a map that's nice and easy to zoom and pan. Unfortunately they do not translate the legend and I forgot my zone codes.

If you like your climate maps nice and simple you can always try this one. A bit crude but good for the general concept.
