You can preview and download the dataset in this tab. The dataset is available in multiple file formats, compatible with most common software packages. You can also view and download the Codebook, which provides information on the structure, contents, and layout of the dataset.
This dataset outlines how to create an isarithmic map, also known as a contour map, of ocean surface temperatures using a subset of Irish Marine Institute’s data and the R statistical software. Isarithmic maps, a subtype of the areal unit map, are used to visualize continuous phenomenon over geographic areas, and enable the reader to easily scrutinize the distribution of a value over a given geographic region. The isarithmic map primarily uses shape to encode values, though there are variations which additionally use fill color. You will learn to identify ideal use cases and best practices for employing the isarithmic map in your work. The dataset file is accompanied by a Student Guide and a How-to Guide for R.
