Geo.me Solutions – Visual Intelligence
In late 2009 the UK Government launched an Open Data initiative, headed by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, along with a call for innovations challenging the developer community to make this data more accessible. In response, Geo.me Solutions is showcasing a number of concept demonstrations using map-based visualisations. The data set represented in the map below was released by the UK Met Office in December 2009. It consists of a network of individual land stations designated by the World Meteorological Organization for use in climate monitoring. The data show monthly average temperature values for over 1,500 land stations. Use the search forms or click markers on the map to find and view data for each land station, including its location, nearby stations, current weather and a plot of monthly average temperatures stretching back more than 300 years in some cases.
