Contouring Concept Model
Java tool to draw isobars or isotherms on a U.S. map of station observations
Students can contour both temperature and pressure. Contour (Temperature) allows only contouring of temperature, while Contour (Pressure) allows only contouring of Pressure. The objective of this tool is to have students look at an actual weather map and learn to contour it.
This includes parsing out the correct information for the station model. They can then compare their effort to a provided solution. Contouring rules should be provided by the instructor.
