map of San Francisco solar monitoring stations

The chart contains information for the SFPUC solar monitoring sites that have at least one year of data as of 8/17/11 (Urban School data is 2006 through 2012) and the map shows the location and insolation kWh/m2/day for 24 sites in San Francisco.  The brightness of the kilowatt hour numbers varies with the insolation.  Differences in nearby stations may be due to different time periods monitored for each station, missing data, differences in the pyranometers, shading, or "microclimates."  Data (without dates) is obtained from http://216.119.104.145/cfapps/solar/WDLYear.xml  although this data has not been updated since 2011.  Solar irradiance data is also available from http://www.datasf.org/story.php?title=san-francisco-wind-monitoring-data-2 but is incomplete.
