View 300 Years of Global Climate Data on One Map [archive]

Curious about climate data world wide for as far back as records go? Thanks to an Open Data initiative launched by the UK Government this year, Geo.me Solutions has created a set of excellent tools that pool together loads of weather data and allow users to navigate through maps and see how climate has changed across the globe, with data stretching as far back as 300 years for some areas. Released this month, the demo tools utilize data from over 1,500 land stations used for climate monitoring. Geo.me states, "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."
