Is the tabular data available for the Pattern Correlation Metrics

The CVDP has a few figures that are titled Pattern Correlation Metrics Tables (http://webext.cgd.ucar.edu/Multi-Case/CVDP_ex/CMIP5-Historical/metrics.table_0.html). However, the tabular data for each record does not appear to be available. Does anyone know if this data is available and where it might be?

In the last release of the CVDP (v5.0.0) the text version of the metrics table (containing the pattern correlations and RMS differences) was replaced with images that are sortable by metric. However, the text version of the metrics table is still available. It is located in the output directory under "metrics.txt". It can also be viewed in your browser by adding "metrics.txt" to the end of the cvdp path location. For example: http://webext.cgd.ucar.edu/Multi-Case/CVDP_ex/CMIP5-Historical/metrics.txt Adam

Just to note, previous versions of the CVDP data did have an actual metrics table: http://webext.cgd.ucar.edu/Multi-Case/CVDP_repository/cmip5.historical/metrics.html. Perhaps the question should be, what is the difference between "CVDP_ex" and "CVDP_repository"?

Previous CVDP versions (up to v5.0.0) displayed the metrics.txt text within a CVDP webpage titled metrics.html. This was changed to allow the user to sort the data by metric. With regards to the differences between the CVDP_ex and CVDP_repository directories: CVDP_ex comparisons are meant to just showcase a range of different comparisons, but the calculated data is not necessarily distributed. CVDP_repository comparisons always allow the calculated data to be downloaded.
