Does anyone please knows where to get global surface temperature maps, yearly? I need separate map for each year from 2002 to 2012 shows the average surface temperature over the globe, would be great if it is in GIS/Envi format.


Unsure if you still need this data but a great resource for annual climate data is directly through NASA/USGS data repositories. Beyond that NCAR holds a large amount of gridded environmental data, specifically for climate/bioclimate. For specifically climate observations, you might be better off with HadCRU data. Both data sets are compatible with GIS software.
