Abstract : This procedural guide provides the Army Terrain Analyst with the methods and procedures necessary to generate a thematic or factor overlay with supportive tables for portraying climate. Seven potential sources of information are considered: climatic summaries; climatic studies and climatic atlases; geographic studies and atlases; maps (climatic); technical literature; aerial photography; and maps (topographic). Procedures for extracting climatic information (data elements) from these sources are presented. Appendices provide the analysts with additional sources of information. (Author)
