<h2>Cooperative Station Information and Map File</h2>
<p>To map the data within the tables researchers will need the corresponding station location coordinates.
These coordinates are not present in each of the data files; however, the following files provide information about the location of the stations where the data was collected.</p>
<p><strong>This component includes:</strong></p>
<li>COOP-STATE-CODES: a file to associate the data collections with their respective state where the stations are located. (ie: 01 = Alabama) Source: <a>ftp://ftp.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/data/inventories/COOP-STATE-CODES.TXT</a></li>
<li>coop-stations: a text-based list of the coordinates and related information about each of the stations. Source: <a href="https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/homr/reports" rel="nofollow">https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/homr/reports</a></li>
<li>coop-stations-layout: a report that explains the codes listed in the above coop-stations list. Source: <a>ftp://ftp.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/data/homr/docs/COOP_Table.txt</a></li>
<li>coop-sod-stations.kmz: a Google Earth file that provides a mapped location for each of the stations. (This can be used in conjunction with the precipitation tables.) Source: <a href="https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/homr/reports" rel="nofollow">https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/homr/reports</a></li>
