Environment Canada stores a set of colour-coded maps of Surface Water Temperature of the Great Lakes, with a nominal accuracy of /-1
degree C. Each map occupies approximately 200 k-bytes. These data come from the NOAA TIROS-N polar orbiting satellite; the temperatures
are obtained from the visible and infrared channels of its associated Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR).
Xerox PARC - Palo Alto Research Center provides a World Map Viewer that can be personally controlled to plot any view of the world. The user can define both Latitude and Longitude to 1/100th of a degree, together with specifying the width and height of the view in degrees - i.e. the size of the window. The site provides Full Details on how to use the viewer and how to place marks on the chosen map at any number of desired positions whose co-ordinates (Lat. and Long.) are known. The SSO map of the Great Lakes and Lake Ontario were produced from data downloaded from the Xerox-PARC site.
