Watch NOAA Weather Data in Second Life

Real-time visualization of NOAA weather daata in the virtual world of Second Life

The real-time weather visualization system that Aimee Weber has been building for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association can now be viewed in the virtual world of Second Life, on »Info Island II«. This is pretty neat stuff, and a nice real-world / virtual-world interface and application. While at this stage it’s not as detailed or interactive as a Web-based weather map, it’s definitely worth checking out. As you can see in the screenshot above, it’s snowing in Wyoming and the Dakotas. More details on SL Insider.
