Where the Wind Comes Sweeping

Ed note: with Sandy on the way, I think we should revisit this.
Brooklyn has been feeling like Oklahoma lately…where the winds come sweeping down the, umm, streets?

Pop forwarded me this amazing project that shows a living portrait of surface wind data.  The animated GIF on the site shows real time wind patterns across the United States.

HINT.FM is the collaboration site of Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg – check out their site for even more interesting combinations of technology and artistry.

Natural beauty and technology translated into yet another mesmerizing stop on the web.
