To view derived temperature anomalies in Arc Map follow these steps: [This is an example for “suw_am_hot.tif” layer, but all other layers can be treated the same way.] 1: Open Arc Map, 2: Add Suw_am_hot.tif layer, 3: Double click on suw_am_hot.tif in table of contents and go to PROPERTIES, 4: Go to SYMBOLOGY, change display to CLASSFIED, 5: Change color for zero to no color and change zero-ten to desired color 6: View layers simultaneously by loading the five images as layers in Arc Map and changing the display to ~30-50% transparency under properties for each image, 7:Use the values in parentheses for each layer: suw_am_hot.tif (value 10), suw_pm_hot.tif (values 20 and 70), suw_pm_plume.tif (value 30), suw_am_plume.tif (40), suw_ampm_warm.tif (value 50).
