Live Wind Energy Map Looks Like Living Van Gogh Painting (One of the Coolest Maps Ever)

Live Wind Energy Map Looks Like Living Van Gogh Painting (One of the Coolest Maps Ever)

Surface wind data comes from the National Digital Forecast Database . These are near-term forecasts, updated once per hour. So what you’re seeing is close to live data. (See the NDFD site for precise details; our timestamp shows time of download.) And for those of you chasing top wind speed, note that maximum speed may occur over lakes or just offshore. An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future. This map shows you the delicate tracery of wind flowing over the US…. We’d be interested in displaying data for other areas; if you know of a source of detailed live wind data for other regions, or the entire globe, please let us know .
