WeatherSpark


WeatherSpark combines two of our favorite topics (data visualization and climate/weather) in one very compelling package. A few quick and interesting things to do with it in under 5 minutes:
  1. Check out predicted cyclicality of temperatures over the 24 hour cycle
  2. Note the difference between observed weather (black line in the past) versus predicted
  3. Check out weather at different physical locations (close to / far from coast; east of / west of mountains; north / south; etc.)
  4. Play around with the other, less intuitive variables (pressure, humidity...)
  5. Do 1. 2. and 3. together to detect rural vs. urban heat island effects (particularly cool)
Enjoy!
