This article focuses on a visualization of tropical cyclone track data occurring over a 40- year period (1970–2010) and their relationship with (extremely) heavy rainfall reported by 88 Central American weather stations. The purpose of the visualization is to associate the paths of tropical cyclones in oceanic areas with heavy rainfall inland. Thus, the potential for producing a set of rainfall patterns might somehow help in predicting where different impacts like flooding might occur when tropical cyclones develop in specific oceanic regions. The visualization will serve as a key tool for CIGEFI scientists to apply in their work to determine critical positions of the tropical cyclones associated with extremely heavy rainfall events at daily timescales.
