Griffith Taylor's Climograph, 1918

Griffith Taylor’s climographs comparing selected Australian towns with the ideal climate for the white race. Taylor’s climographs combine wet-bulb temperature and humidity data for each month of the year, producing a twelve-sided polygon for each location to allow easy comparison between them. Other climographs compiled by Taylor show the close similarity between tropical Australia and India.
