Visualizing Global Precipitation

by Morgan Stevens

Visual Capitalist, an online publisher of data visualizations, has published a visualization tracking precipitation levels around the world. It shows regions that receive more than 39 inches of rain each year—which is the average annual precipitation around the world—in blue, and regions that receive less than the average precipitation in beige. According to the visualization, if a region is close to water sources, at a lower latitude, on the windward side of mountains, or close to the equator, it is more likely to receive above average precipitation.

Take a look.
