Another beautiful wind map

Several weeks ago I published an item about my favorite wind map — live wind currents swirling across a map of the United States in an endless, ever-changing piece of abstract art.

In searching for its URL, I found another wind map. On it the swirling winds cover the entire globe in a beautiful blue-and-green interactive map. You can rotate the earth to any location and zoom in or out. And don’t overlook the “earth” menu in the lower left corner. From there you can add a lot of different overlays such as temperature and humidity. Even carbon monoxide concentrations. There’s more, but I haven’t figured it all out yet.

The internet is so cool!

  1. Cool! Yesterday we would have been a pretty solid, bright neon green area. Winds were steady in the mid-upper 20’s with gusts into the 40’s. It was a blustery day.

  2. On this new map, if you click on the speed (ie. km/hr) you can change it to other measurements, like mph.

  3. Another awesome find my friend!

  4. Interesting that the wind flow over the British Isles is east to west. I wonder if that’s typical?

  5. Would you believe that when I click on it it opens with Australia as the main continent? That’s even more amazing.

    I wonder if someone in, say India, opened it they would have the Indian sub-continent as the main image?

  6. I forgot to mention it was maily the east coast of Australia, where I live! Amazing
