The 0.25° grid precipitation dataset covering Midwestern China (2010) was developed based on the precipitation data from 121 meteorological stations in 2010 and TRMM 3B43 precipitation estimation products in the mid-western region of China (25°-35°N, 105°-115°E). The HASM (High Accuracy Surface Modeling) based hybrid interpolation method was utilized. Firstly, TRMM precipitation was used to represent the stable part of precipitation in the space (Trend surface). Secondly, residual between the rain gauge observations and the trend surface was interpolated to obtain residual field based on HASM. Finally, the final precipitation product was developed by adding interpolated residual field with trend surface. The MAE and RMSE of TRMM based on HASM simulation results are 125.15 mm and 155.80 mm, respectively. The dataset includes the precipitation data based on TRMM and HASM, and three other methods (IDW, kriging and spline). The resolution is 0.25°x 0.25°and the unit of precipitation is mm. The dataset is archived in .tif data format, and consists of 20 data files with data size of 64.2 KB (Compressed to one single file with data size of 48.8 KB). The analysis paper based on the dataset was published at Journal of Geo-Information Science, Vol.17, No.8, 2015.
