This gridded 1 km resolution global (50°S ~79°N) daily        maximum and minimum near-surface air temperature dataset (2003 – 2020) was generated using a seamless 1 km resolution land surface temperature dataset (2003 – 2020), a 30-arc second (~1 km) resolution digital elevation model (DEM) data, and air temperature observations at weather stations and a spatially varying coefficient model with sign preservation (SVCM-SP) algorithm. The gridded air temperature dataset is of great use in global studies of urban, climate, and hydrology.
