Tropical cyclones 1848 – 2014 active and online!

Climate Wikience now provides best tracks for all tropical cyclones since 1848 up to 2014. The data were imported from “IBTrACS – best tropical cyclone tracks” [1]
Climate Wikience enables you not only to view tracks on the globe but also visualize related data like wind speed or cloud top temperature.

Each cyclone center has associated data like latitude/longitude coordinates, the date and time and many other properties. You can visualize the associated data near cyclone center by adjusting the “Properties” tab.
