Visualizing the Wind: A Wind Map Art Project

Two designers, Fernanda Viegas and Martin Wattenberg, have just made a moving map of the wind with surface wind data acquired from the government’s National Digital Forecast Database and updated hourly.  Here you can view an animated map that will show you today’s wind patterns as well as a Gallery of archived maps to enable users to compare a variety of wind patterns.   Students could compare this dynamic representation with NREL’s wind resource maps to understand variations in wind resource potential across the US.
