New Wind Rose Diagrams
Today we’re happy to announce the addition of two wind rose diagrams to the Wind page of all Weathercloud devices. These new interactive plots provide an accurate view of how wind speed and direction are distributed at a certain location.
The diagram on the left shows the percentage of time that the wind blows from each direction, with the most frequent ones being represented by the longest segments. Additional information is displayed when placing the mouse over a specific segment, including the frequency expressed as a percentage and the cardinal direction.
The diagram on the right, for its part, displays the average wind speed for each wind direction. In this case, mousing over a segment will show the wind speed value in the units you set.
Both wind rose diagrams have been developed from scratch by our team, just as every other visual element on Weathercloud. We hope you find them useful and look forward to your comments and suggestions. Also, feel free to share any ideas you may have for future developments. Thanks!
