FLORIDA RAINFALL MAPS
The accompanying maps illustrate Florida rainfall for a thirty year
period, 1949-78. The maps and the data from which they were derived were used in Isaacs' (1980) master's thesis "Precipitation Regimes Of Florida: Spatial Analyses And Time Series" and are being used in Brandes' current research on the significance of hurricane rainfall to the South Florida water budget. The isohyets were based on data from sixty-two stations chosen for location and data continuity. Values were taken from Summaries of Climatological Data of the National Climatic Center (NCC), published by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The original maps from which these were redrawn were produced by a line printer from SYHAP software of the Laboratory for Computer Graphics and Spatial Analysis. Harvard University (1975).
