An update on Branden’s previous post on the artistic possibilities of Big Data.
And this gives rise to a very simple question: Going beyond the artistic, are there other (big) data sets waiting in the wings to be exploited?
One very interesting candidate after looking around the NOAA web-site is their global rainfall estimates based on infrared satellite image data from GOES satellites. This data could be periodically retrieved and a global forecast model produced much in the same fashion as the wind conditions above.
Inspiration begetting inspiration, begetting yet more…
