Exploring Temperature Variations
Open World base map.
Climate options on the map toolbar, and then:
|Pick the month, or cycle through with the
forward and backward buttons.
Pick the max and min colors for symbolization. Higher or lower values will show the peak color.
Label the month, and number of readings, in the upper left corner.
Legend lets you hide or place a legend.
The most useful options will be:
Drag climograph on maps.
This can produce a very effective map. You must insure that your base map is large enough so that you can place the climographs around the portion of the map that you want to leave blank.
If you filter the database, perhaps by setting a filter or doing a geographic map query to show a particular region, you can look for variation by elevation (not all the stations have elevation).
Pick Koppen climate classification on map toolbar.
