Wind Map








Wind Map is a real-time visualization of wind directions and wind speeds in the United States. The brightness of the vector indicates its speed, while the movement indicates its direction. The data for wind speed and direction is obtained from  the National Digital Forecast Database, and is updated every hour. The visualization is thus a snapshot of the past hour’s data, though it creates the illusion of immediate wind speed and direction. The map is created using JavaScript.
