This map shows the suitability analysis used to determine areas with the highest requirement for new climate monitoring stations across the province of British Columbia. The input data includes cluster analyses on the precipitation and temperature patterns derived from the PRISM models obtained from Climate BC, current station density, lightning density and aridity index. The spatial analysis aids in reducing the cost and time needed to update and optimize the BC climate monitoring network and maximizing the quality and quantity of data collected.
