Heavy Precipitation Days

About this Data Set

Using the servo pointer, neopixel grid or fairy lights, users can toggle between different scenarios, the recent past (2000,2010,2020), the immediate future ( 2030-2050), and the near future(2060-2080). The data would be the projected change in mean heavy precipitation Days (20 mm) in a user’s given province or the entirety of Canada.

Sample Projects

HEAVY PRECIPITATION DAYS - Neopixel Grid

Project Description:

Using the 8×8 neopixel grid you would be able to see data set from 3 different periods of time, the recent past(1976-2005), the immediate future ( 2021-2050), and the near future (2051-2080).  Users will also be able to switch between a low carbon scenario and a high carbon scenario only when the immediate future or near future scenarios are selected.

Each province will be represented by an LED. Depending on the severity of the precipitation of that year the LED will change colours.

Legend

Orange = very low 

Light blue = low

Indigo = moderate

Blue = high

Pressing button A users can go to the following time period

Pressing button B users can go to the next year

Pressing Button A+B will change the scenario to a low or high-carbon scenario

(When either Immediate Future or Near Future option is selected)

HEAVY PRECIPITATION DAYS - Servo Project

Project Description:

Using the Servo pointer, users can toggle between different scenarios, the recent past(2000-2020), the immediate future ( 2030-2050), and the near future(2060-2080). The data would be the projected mean of annual precipitation in a user’s given province or the entirety of Canada. 

The servo project will have 5 total values to represent the amount of precipitation, the first value will represent very little precipitation, the second value will equal a little, the third value will represent moderate,  the fourth value high, and the last value will be very high

Legend

Plus sign: High carbon Scenario

Minus sign: Low carbon Scenario 

Led at the bottom represents time periods 

Recent Past = coordinates (0,5) 

Immediate Future = coordinates (2,5)

Near Future = coordinates (4,5)

 

Pressing button A users can go to the following time period

Pressing button B users can go to the previous time period

Pressing Button A+B will change the scenario to a low or high-carbon scenario

(User cannot toggle between scenarios when the time period is Recent Past)

HEAVY PRECIPITATION DAYS - Fairy Lights

Project Description:

Using the neopixel fairy lights, users can toggle between different scenarios, the recent past(2000-2020), the immediate future ( 2030-2050), and the near future(2060-2080). The data will display the data using an effect similar to a raindrop splashing. The more precipitation during that year the faster the rain will drop.

Legend

Orange = very low precipitation 

Light blue = moderate

Blue = high
