I am fairly new to GIS softwares and this will be my first post here. I'm working with DIVA-GIS and was redirected here. I hope this is the correct place. I am doing a research which involves ecological niche modeling for present and future climate scenarios. However, i am having some urgent problems with creating the .clm files for the predicted future climate. I have downloaded the necessary data from WorldClim. I have followed the instructions from "Ramirez & Bueno, 2009, Working with climate data and niche modeling: Creation of bioclimatic variables", but DIVA GIS doesnt seem to want to create the files. Basically, i open up the "Make CLM files" window in DIVA GIS, and have all the necessary 36 .grd files + the alt.grd required for the operation. I have correctly inserted the prefixes and ticked their boxes. As soon as i press "OK", these boxes automatically uncheck, the 36 files are not split into the "selected files" spaces present in the window, and the program only creates the single climate.cli files. I have found this question being asked on the internet but with no answer. I have no idea how to solve the issue as everything seems to have been done correctly. Does anybody have an idea? Help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all.
