yes, but there are no NC towns as points in the standard dataset. You could
use precip_30ynormals at PERMANENT which are the meteorology stations, which
probably doesn't make much sense since but maybe it's still good for the
- add the shoreline ocean data, maybe in a new mapset
Helena suggests here to select a smaller, dynamic area (some cape for
example) and also provide a DEM and ortho for that area (elev_lid792 is not
coastal) to get some context. I am not sure about this dataset, if it's
really needed, because I don't know what kind of temporal vector analysis
we could show in the manual. It could be a good dataset to show how to
create animations. If we decide to do it, I can help you with this part.
Another option is to derive contours from the temperature/precipitation
dataset. The advantage is that's easier to prepare.
- create at least one temporal dataset for each type (strds, str3ds, stvds)
Do we have any temporal data for 3d raster? I don't think we necessarily
have to create this dataset.
- update the temporal documentation according the new dataset.
