The Wind has Landed
I'm sure you have all seen earth.nullschool.net's gorgeous animated globe visualizing weather conditions around the world. Esri has now taken the same weather data from the Global Forecast System used in the map and created Windy-JS.
Windy-JS re-purposes the weather data so that it can be overlaid in a canvas element on top of a variety of mapping APIs. Esri has created a demo map with Windy-JS, Wind Animation, which allows you to view global wind conditions animated on a slippy map.
