USGS Color Map Data Grapher

This is a data graphing utility that allows the user to build color maps using data from selected USGS stations. Select the station, the parameter to plot, the starting and ending dates, the type of color map, and the color scale for the color map. Then, click the button labeled "Make Color Map."

Step 1: [Optional] Choose a basin from the drop-down list.


Step 2: Choose a site from the drop-down list.

 Measurements at this site are available here at 30 minute intervals.
 Some data are provisional and subject to revision.
 More data from this site may be available from NWIS-Web.

Step 3: Choose the parameter to map.

    Apply a -day running average.
The Daily Total statistic is for rainfall data only.


Step 4: Choose starting and ending dates for the data in the color map.

Begin Date: --  
End Date: --
Month-Day shortcuts:

Step 5: Choose the axes for the color map.

Step 6: Choose the color scheme for the color map.

Specify a color to be used for missing data:
RGB colors here are specified with a hexadecimal code, where two characters
each specify the levels of red, green, and blue from 0 (hex 00) to 255 (hex FF).


Scale Type:  

Step 7: Make the color map, or reset the form and try again.

Construction of the color map may take a minute or two.
