Climate Explorer allows users to layer maps based on climate stressors and their impacts to compare daily observations with historical data collected from thousands of weather stations across the U.S. Maps can zoom in and scale to individual buildings, or zoom out and allow a view of the entire country. The maps are interactive and can generate graphs showing historical climate normals and how they compare to current observations. Currently, there are more than 9,000 weather stations supplying data to the Climate Explorer.
Features of the Climate Explorer enable the user to:
- control map layers and their transparency
- Switch the base map view between street view and satellite imagery
- Share all maps generated including active layers through a URL permalink
- Compare historical observations among multiple weather stations
