The Boneyard Network Today

In 2007 observers participating in the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow network in Champaign-Urbana were included in the Boneyard Network. Until that time the Boneyard Network consisted of volunteer observers in and around Champaign - Urbana, mostly current and former Water Survey staff members. Beginning on November 1, 2008, the Boneyard Network became a sub network of the CoCoRaHS observers in Champaign County. This allows us to take advantage of the infrastructure and mapping capabilities of the CoCoRaHS program, which is now national in scope. Monthly maps of precipitation for the Boneyard Network will continue to be compiled and posted on this web page.

How to Access the Maps

To view precipitation, snowfall, and snow depth maps for the Champaign-Urbana area, go to the CoCoRaHS map page. Use the selection boxes at the top of the page to select the element, state, county and date for the map you wish to view. To see the map of Champaign-Urbana, select Champaign-Urbana in the Cities/Counties box. Note that you can view a map for any participating state and county in the U.S., not just Illinois. Listings of the data are also available under the View Data menu at the top of the page.

Maps and data are updated in real time, i.e. data appears on the map within minutes of the observer entering the data. Enhancements to the CoCoRaHS maps are being planned in the near future.

The maps of precipitation events through October 2008 were generated using a GIS mapping program, then saved in Adobe Acrobat format. You may view and download these maps from this web site.
