Live Wind Map

This visualization is best seen on the website of the visualization. That is because data is presented in real time, showing wind patterns in the continental United States, shown in miles per hour. Certain major cities are shown when the site is loaded, and by clicking on the map one can zoom. A drawback of the design is that one must notice the "Unzoom" button on the side to return it to the original scope - it would be easier for a user if an option to "zoom/unzoom" popped up to help a user adjust the scale.
