Really interesting to take a look at comparisons between countries
Definitely worth checking out – some interesting weather and Twitter data visualizations that may be related to past and/or current projects.
FF Chartwell is a tool that aims to solve the problems of creating graphs in design programs by turning strings of numbers into elegant charts. I haven’t tried it out but definitely looks interesting!
TimeMaps is an interesting visualization of maps that incorporate additional data. This project looks at the geography of the Netherlands based on travel time using public transit – as trains start/stop running, the shape of the map changes.

NOAA – Tidal Datums and Their Applications
http://geonames.usgs.gov/pls/gnispublic/f?p=132:1:4304974004047406::NO::: More topo data
Storm surge = difference between measured water levels and elevation of the astronomically predicted tide
Maximum height reached by storm surge is affected by (1) phase of tide at time of the surge and (2) stand of local mean sea level for that time of year
Different forms of measurements (referenced in section on Storm Surges analysis)
- MLLW – Mean Lower Low Water = the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the National Tidal Datum Epoch. For stations with shorter series, comparison of simultaneous observations with a control tide station is made in order to derive the equivalent datum of the National Tidal Datum Epoch.
- MHHW – Mean Higher High Water = the average of all the high water heights observed over the National Tidal Datum Epoch. For stations with shorter series, comparison of simultaneous observations with a control tide station is made in order to derive the equivalent datum of the National Tidal Datum Epoch.
- MSL – Mean Sea Level = The arithmetic mean of hourly heights observed over the National Tidal Datum Epoch. Shorter series are specified in the name; e.g. monthly mean sea level and yearly mean sea level.

Visualization of data from the 115 cardinals who will choose the new pope, organized across different key variables.
Neil Freeman is an artist and urban planner in NYC. He has done a lot of work around visualizing maps and physical relationships between places/things, but he also has collected a lot of data around topics and areas of interest to him.
Dynamic visualization of how much people in different countries ‘spend’ (in terms of calories and income) on food.
I love this visualization of food groups and complimentary tastes associated with different selections. Would love to post this in my kitchen!
