Hurricane Tracking mashup - StormPulse

A reader named Matthew contacted me to share details of his very slick hurricane tracking mashup called StormmPulse. The application has a very nice mapping interface and provides tons of information about historical hurricanes. Users can map the storm track, access information about the storm from NOAA, read about the storm's lifecycle, grab info from Wikipedia, view photos posted to flickr that reference the hurricane and much more (as an example see details of Hurricane Alberto, 2006 http://www.stormpulse.com/200601) - this is a fantastic mashup and I can't wait to see more from it! See http://www.stormpulse.com

Hi Glenn,

Thanks for the compliments and mention. I just wanted to provide a quick update--we had a few bugs to work out that were causing a number of our data sets to be unavailable or missing. If you're willing to take another look at the site, you'll see we're also bringing in the latest GOES imagery (limited sampling until we do more work), Yahoo News articles, and weather reports from raw data from NOAA (if you're using Firefox you can actually click a city name or buoy ID and it will pan the map to the location the measurement was taken).

Much more is on the way (stay tuned!).
