Hail Graphs

Challenge

How do we understand how weather varies over time for more rare phenomena than rain or snow?

Solution

I created a visualization of hail falling over time (using data from the NOAA) that allows users to enter any location in the United States and see which years and dates had high or low amounts of hail falling.

Tools

D3.js, Javascript, HTML, CSS

Process

The visualization was created using d3.js. It required exploring the NOAA api's, which were not fully documented. Code is available at https://github.com/waternova/hail-graph.
