Maproom Checklist
For more robust results, use the "high temporal coverage" option when possible, "intermediate coverage" only when necessary.

Area-averaging increases signal while reducing noise. Selecting a single gridpoint may seem more precise, but results will often be less reliable.

Compare area-averaged results using nested regions of different sizes. If there is little change, higher confidence can be assigned to the smaller regions.

Have you selected the desired variable? (Temperature or precipitation.)
