The White House has launched a website to make climate data more accessible, according to National Public Radio.

At launch, the site is sharing data on coastal flooding and sea-level rise. The information is available at climate.data.gov and will eventually be expanded to include data sets on other climate changes.

The new website brings together data collected by federal agencies like NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the U.S. Geological Survey. It is in line with a climate action plan put forth by President Obama that includes a series of executive orders to help prepare the U.S. for climate change.
