The Worldwide Wind Map
You have probably seen Hint.fm's beautiful Wind Map of the United States. You may also have seen the Tokyo Wind Map, a similar animated map of real-time wind speeds and direction in and around Tokyo.
The developers behind the Tokyo Wind Map have now created an even more impressive visualization of near real-time global weather conditions. Like Hint.fm and the Tokyo Wind Map, Earth uses D3.js to create an interactive map that displays wind speeds in near real-time, only this time the map is a gorgeous 3d globe.
