Wind Map 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. The wind map is a personal art project, not associated with any company. We've done our best to make this as accurate as possible, but can't make any guarantees about the correctness of the data or our software. If the map is missing or seems slow, we recommend the latest Chrome browser. Surface wind data comes from the National Digital Forecast Database. If you're looking for a weather map, or just want more detail on the weather today, see these more traditional maps of temperature and wind.

Gapminder: Unveiling the beauty of statistics for a fact based world view. How terrorism in the West compares to terrorism everywhere else - Washington Post Everything Sings - Siglio Press Intro by Ira Glass, essays by Albert Mobilio and Ander Monson, interview by Blake Butler. That a cartographer could set out on a mission that’s so emotional, so personal, so idiosyncratic, was news to me. —IRA GLASS, host of This American Life, from his introduction to Everything Sings. Iconoclastic geographer Denis Wood has created an atlas unlike any other. He surveys his small, century-old neighborhood Boylan Heights in Raleigh, North Carolina by first paring away the inessential (scale, orientation, street grids), then by locating the revelatory in the unmapped and unmappable: radio waves permeating the air, the paperboy’s route in space and time, the light cast by street lamps, Halloween pumpkins on porches. His joyful subversion of the traditional notions of map making forge new ways of seeing not only this particular place, but also the very nature of place itself. About Denis Wood
