Cloud Globe

We gathered cloud data that’s used to render the weather layer in Google Maps and created the Cloud Globe Cloud Globe, a +Google Chrome experiment that shows hourly snapshots of the world’s cloud cover from July 1, 2010 to September 12, 2012. You can see prominent storms from 2010 and 2011 labeled with their names, location and wind speed (2012 storm data is not yet available).

In addition to the storm layer, there’s a vegetation map so you can see the accumulation of clouds over rainforest regions like the Amazon basin, and a map of ocean currents so that you can see how the clouds sometimes follow the same paths.
