Vancouver; B.C.




The August 9, 2018 Land Surface Temperature (LST) map shown below was created using Landsat Analysis Ready Data from USGS. The original Kelvin temperatures have been converted to Fahrenheit.  LST temperatures below 100ºF have been group together and are colored light blue. LST temperatures from 100ºF to 130ºF have been grouped in 5ºF increments.  The LST temperatures from 130ºF to 151ºF have been grouped as polygon areas. This has been done to reduce the file size, which improves web site performance. The reduced file size takes about one minute to load into your web browser (depending on your network). Please be patient.
