There is an incredible new visual data resource, earth, developed by Cameron Beccario, that compiles and updates wind and ocean data from a variety of sources including NOAA, the US National Weather Service, and OSCAR, to create beautiful animated data displays on the globe! Take some time to play with all of the modes, overlay options, and global projections to see some unique views of Earth. Check out some of the screen shots I took below (each one clicks through to their respective animation). The surface currents animation reminds me of van Gogh's Starry Night. What do you think?
