The commonly used Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) relies on a representative parametric probability distribution function (e.g., Gamma). However, a parametric distribution function may not fit the data, especially in continental/global scale studies. This code computes SPI based on a nonparametric framework that does not require assuming a representative parametric distribution. The most attractive feature of the framework is that it leads to statistically consistent drought indicators based on different variables. A user guide and sample inpute data are included in the package.
This code is also part of the Standardized Drought Analysis Toolbox (SDAT):
