Land-Climate Interactions: Constraints for Droughts and Heatwaves in a Changing Climate
Generating a plot
To generate a plot, first select a diagnostic, data source, variable (or index), and the region set using the dropdown menus in the data panel. After that, select the spatial domain of interest.
Selecting a region
Global domains can be selected in the dropdown list below "Apply To Global Domain", other regions can be selected in the map by clicking on the region. Per default, the pre-selected region set is the one used in the corresponding publication.
Using the map
The map displays a base (background) layer, a layer containing the selected region set, and a gridded colored data layer with corresponding legend. The availability of the gridded data layer depends on the selected diagnostic and data source. Base layers can be selected by clicking on the layer icon in the upper left corner of the map. The map can be zoomed using the "+" and "-" buttons in the lower left corner of the map, or by using the mouse wheel.
Using the plots
When moving the mouse pointer over the plot, it will display a text box showing the values of the selected point of one or multiple series (usually displayed as lines with x and y coordinates). A series can be disabled or enabled by clicking on it in the legend of the plot. You can zoom into the plot by drawing a rectangle around the area that you want to zoom to. Zoom back by clicking "Reset zoom" in the upper right corner of the plot.
Contents of the plots
