Debut of the CoCoRaHS Interactive Map

CoCoRaHS has a new look! Or, more accurately, a new map!  After many months of development and testing we are happy to debut the new CoCoRaHS interactive map.


This is a Geographical Information System (GIS)-based interactive mapping system that has a number of features requested by CoCoRaHS data users. With this mapping you will be able to display precipitation accumulations over a user-selected period, from just two days to any 45-day period in the database.  Besides precipitation and snowfall, you can also view Hail reports, Significant Weather Reports, and stations. You are able to zoom down to your local city, county, or neighborhood. Users can access the individual observations by clicking on the dot on the map.

There are many other features with this new mapping system, and you can find a description of them by downloading the CoCoRaHS Interactive Map Features or accessing it in the “About” menu option on the map. You can also view a video about the new maps. Please use the “Feedback” button at the top right hand corner of the map screen to submit any comments or suggestions you may have about the map.

For those of you who prefer the simplicity of the old “dot maps”, they are being retained and can be accessed through the thumbnail to the right of the main map on the home page, or through the Maps link on the top menu. The previous “new” (Google) map is no longer available from the web site. These maps will be discontinued in the near future, and if you have bookmarks to these maps they will no longer work when the Google map subscription expires.
