Winds Across the US

A collaborative project on data visualization brings to life the wind velocity data across the United States.  The Wind Map is an interactive, nearly real-time indicator of wind conditions across the country, compiled on an hourly basis from the National Digital Forecast Database.  Be sure to click through to see the data in motion. Observing the variety in wind patterns over the scale of days brings to light the swirling motion of surface winds much the way Perpetual Ocean does for surface currents. Fluid dynamics are all around us.
