NSDL.org - National Science Digital Library Digital Typhoon: Typhoon Images and Information - National Institute of Informatics This site has the comprehensive archive of meteorological satellite "Himawari" images since 1978, and offers a typhoon database of about 200,000 typhoon images since 1979 and typhoon best tracks since 1951 to search by date, name, location, cloud patterns, and so on. Recently this site started to provide typhoon forecast information, but the latest typhoon information, weather forecast, advisories and warnings should be obtained from reliable sources such as "Japan Meteorological Agency: Typhoon Information" and other sites.

30+ Cool Content Curation Tools for Personal & Professional Use As the web becomes more and more inundated with blogs, videos, tweets, status updates, news, articles, and countless other forms of content, “information overload” is something we all seem to suffer. It is becoming more difficult to weed through all the “stuff” out there and pluck out the best, most share-worthy tidbits of information, especially if your topic is niche. Let’s face it, Google definitely has its shortcomings when it comes to content curation and the more it tries to cater to all audiences, the less useful it becomes. Math and Science Curriculum Identifying reliable sources To obtain or provide community input on whether a source meets our reliability standards for a particular use, see the reliable sources noticeboard. Wikipedia articles should be based on reliable, published sources, making sure that all majority and significant minority views that have appeared in those sources are covered (see Wikipedia:Neutral point of view). The guideline in this page discusses the reliability of various types of sources. The policy on sourcing is Wikipedia:Verifiability, which requires inline citations for any material challenged or likely to be challenged, and for all quotations.
