In the basic maps facts are presented which are important for the examination and valuation of the climate, for example the height level, the land use and the position of measuring points. Other maps give information on the surface temperature, the mean annual air temperature, nocturnal cold air production
and the velocity and volumes of cold air flow. All is included in a GIS project.
