This paper has as main objective the climatic and bioclimatic investigation of the wider area of Athens that is defined by the fully automated telemetric network of stations (METEONET), which has been installed by the National Technical University of Athens. The climatic and bioclimatic investigation of study area was accomplished by the use of climatic and bioclimatic indices. Through a wide spectrum of indices that exist, the appropriate indices were selected in order to describe as well as possible the climatic conditions of Athens. Firstly the indices were calculated for every hydrometeorological station and afterwards a surface completion of data was realized with the use of Arc Map software by applying the interpolation method IDW. The results were many thematic maps for every climatic index in monthly basis. The spatial depiction points out the climatic classification of study area and concludes to valuable information for climatic conditions.
