Overview

Similar to the Precipitation Heat Map - the Year-Over-Year Daily Precipitation Map shows rain patterns geographically over time. However, unlike the precipitation map, this map provides you an analysis of improvement or degradation in precipitation from the same period during the prior year.  This insight panel helps answer the question, "Well, I know it was sunny this past weekend, why were our sales not up more?"  If the weather was sunny last year, its likely that you won't receive a significant sales lift because the weather was similar. The map also helps answer why sales were much better or worse through evaluation of a "good last year, bad this year" or "bad last year, good this year" analysis.
