Module 8: Isarithmic Mapping

Continuous Tint 
Maps created this week show the 30 year precipitation in the state of Washington. Both are isarethmic maps, one using continuous tint, and the other using hypsometric tint with contours. Both maps use the same color ramp.
Hypsometric Tint with Contours
Both maps were created using ArcMap. Continuous tint map was very straight forward, as the data was already in the appropriate form, and only required a choice of a color ramp. The hypsometric tint map required the data to be classified. I chose manual classification with ten classes. once my data was classified I used the Contour tool to add the contour tool to add the contour lines, using the same ranges as I did for the data classification.
