Updates in openAir – Wind maps

openAir - wind map - Carmelia, Haifa
So yes, it took some time, but i’m happy to present the wind map visualization of openAir. It’s a combination of Leaflet map, Stamen toner tiles and svgs created using the famous D3.js.
The idea is to put station locations on the map, along with a specific visualization of wind speed and direction as measured in that station. The visualization also presents the wind history in that station with gradually transparent wings.
I didn’t work with JavaScript before, so it took me some time and help from good people (Udi Oron, Arnon Eilat) to understand the syntax, but from here i think it’ll be easier.
