Daymet Single Pixel Data Extraction
Entry ID: Daymet_single_pixel


Summary
Abstract: From the Single Pixel Extraction page, daily surface data within the Daymet database can be downloaded in tabular format for a single point. This data access option allows user's to enter a single geographic point by latitude and longitude in decimal degrees. A routine is executed that translates the (lon, lat) coordinates into projected Daymet (x,y) coordinates. These coordinates are used to access the Daymet database of daily interpolated surface weather variables. Daily data from the nearest 1 km x 1 km Daymet grid cell are extracted from the database and formatted as a table with one column for each Daymet variable and one row for each day. All daily data for selected years are returned as a single (long) table, formatted for display in the browser window. At the top of this table is a link to the same data in a simple text format, suitable for import into a spreadsheet or other data analysis software. Daymet variables included in the record are; for each day, maximum and minimum temperature, precipitation, shortwave radiation, water vapor pressure, snow water equivalent, and day length. Graphical Visualization plots of Daymet variables over time are also made available.
