Dataset: Charts of climate statistics and MODIS data for all subregions 2014



This dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from 'Mean climate variables for all subregions' and 'fPAR derived from MODIS for BA subregions'. You can find a link to the parent datasets in the Lineage Field in this metadata statement. The History Field in this metadata statement describes how this dataset was derived.

These are charts of climate statistics and MODIS data for each BA subregion. There are six 600dpi PNG files per subregion, with the naming convention BA-[regioncode]-[subregioncode]-[chartname].png. The charts, according to their filename, are: rain (time-series of rainfall; Figure 1), P-PET (average monthly precipitation and potential evapotranspiration; Figure 2), 5line (assorted monthly statistics; Figure 3), trend (monthly long-term trends; Figure 4) and fPAR (fraction of photosynthetically available radiation - an indication of biomass; Figure 5).


These charts were generated to be included in the Contextual Report (geography) for each subregion.

Dataset History

These charts were generated using MatPlotLib 1.3.0 in Python 2.7.5 (Anaconda distribution v1.7.0 32-bit).

The script for generating these plots is, and is packaged with the dataset. This script is a data collection and chart drawing script, it does not do any analysis. The data are charted as they appear in the parent datasets (see Lineage). A word document (BA-ClimateGraphs-ReadMe) is also included. This document includes examples of, and approved captions for, each chart.
