This paper presents the software implementation for generation of temperature climatic chart using the ordinary kriging method and correction by altitude. It is use the ordinary kriging to solve the missing data problem and adjust the calculated values by the point altitude. The input data were obtained from meteorological station, connected to PostgreSQL DBMS and the application use the library libpq for data access. The chart generation was realized using the library GD, results a PNG file with the graphical representation, as well as a text file with latitude, longitude, altitude and temperature data.
