This is the result of our example setup:
The first table gives us the maximum rainfall intensities for a host of time periods. The second table contains the historical IDF data you chose to include.
Looking at the first table, cells highlighted in a particular color indicate that the rainfall event exceeded the relative historical maximum value. In this example, from the 10-minute duration all the way down to the 12-hour duration, rainfall intensity values are highlighted in blue. This indicates that these events exceeded the IDF 2-year event for the corresponding time period.
The report's top panel contains buttons for browsing through the various pages. As well, there is a search function, in which you can input full or partial words or numbers to have the system highlight areas that match your search criteria.
