This is a project I did as an undergraduate in Geography 376 - Advanced GIS at the University of British Columbia: I basically copied the methods of the following authors:

Wang, T., Hamann, A., Spittlehouse, D., Aitken, S. N. 2006. Development of scale-free climate data for western Canada for use in resource management. International Journal of Climatology, 26(3):383-397.

Please do not cite my data as Wang et al.'s methods are original and more robust. I am simply sharing the research project I completed as an example of my knowledge using ArcGIS.
