USGS Data Grapher, XY Plots

This is a data graphing utility that allows the user to build XY graphs of data from selected USGS stations and highlight certain months or years or dates. Select the station, the parameters to plot, the starting and ending dates, and the type of highlighting (if any) for the graph. Then, click the button labeled "Make Graph."

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 parameters to plot.

X Parameter:
    Apply a -day running average.
   
Y Parameter:
    Apply a -day running average.
The Daily Total statistic is for rainfall data only.
The Vector Mean statistic is for wind-speed and wind-direction data only.
The Unit-Vector Mean statistic is for wind-direction data only.

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

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

Step 5: Choose the type of legend and data highlighting.

Begin month:   Begin day:   Begin year:
End month: End day: End year:

Step 6: Make the graph, or reset the form and try again.

  
Construction of the graph may take a minute or two.
