Rainfall Map

I like maps in general, especially those that combine great graphics with good information. Here's one of the best in that category. It would be great if this were on the wall of every school classroom and city council in the America West.

The one problem with the map is that it doesn't have a good legend. The scale goes from purple (more than 100 inches) to blue, green, yellow, orange, red. The darkest reds in Southern California are less than five inches.

For a bigger version that also is interactive ("click on your state to get state data"), go to this site at Oregon State University.
