Windcent Van Gogh

live wind map

Fernanda B. Viégas and Martin Wattenberg, founders of Many Eyes, have created one of the coolest maps I’ve ever seen — it looks like a living Vincent van Gogh masterpiece.

You can see a still of the map above, but you have to check out the (nearly) live wind map to get the full effect.


  1. MESMERIZING. And very cool. Makes me wonder about the Wind Farms near us. Looks kind of quiet here.

  2. COOL! I had seen still photos of this, but hadn't seen the live feed.

  3. That is so cool. I could stare at it all day....and then be fired because I was doing so!

  4. This is neat. I love how the wind shows the mountain chains!!

  5. This was rad! It reminds me of how many cartoonist and animators show Poseidon or Neptune forming when he is angry!!


Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
