Map showing stations from the period of 1998 to 2013 in the GHCN-Daily dataset. A total of 8361 stations are shown here; however, on any given day between 1 Jan 1998 and 31 Dec 2013, the number of stations with usable precipitation observations varied in the range of 4500 to 6500. The red dots with labels from 1 to 5 denote the locations of Sydney, Alice Springs, Perth, Cairns, and Hobart, respectively, which are specifically referred to in Section 3.
