I Love Blr : Visualizing Bangalore Temperature
I was going through weather data exposed by India Water Portal and I was thinking about an interesting application which would show my love to Bangalore. The best part of Bangalore is its temperature, rains and clouds. So I wrote this small app which uses the data provided by India Water Portal (which in turn is by CRU). IWP has data for all the districts in India, for every month and for multiple parameters. They have data for 100 years. It quite an amount of data to play with if you are interested. They have an easy way of filtering and downloading.
It uses Jquery and data is JSON format. View source the page to get the code. I am not much of a visual guy. I browsed many sites to get a color pattern. Here is what I am using for different temperatures 20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30. All temperatures are monthly averages and are in degree centigrade.
It took two hours for me to code it. Go check the application and let me know what do you think.
I will add rain and cloud information once I demystify that data.
