Wladimir Köppen: our inspiration
The story of our ground-breaking technology begins with the work of one man – Wladimir Köppen a Russian-born climatologist and geographer. Wladimir’s biggest contribution – the Köppen climate classification system – is still widely used today, and is the inspiration for the technology that lets Köppen help you perform at your peak.
Wladimir Köppen began his studies in St. Petersburg in 1864. He spent most of his professional career in Germany and Austria, studying climate and the natural environment. In 1900, he developed the Köppen climate classification system, plotting the world’s climatic zones.
Today, we look at Köppen’s influential work to further our understanding of climate.
