2012 Visualization and Data Analysis 2012  
The variables most commonly displayed on weather maps are atmospheric pressure, wind speed and direction, and surface temperature. But they are usually shown separately, not together on a single map.  ...  We conducted an experiment to evaluate our new design both against a conventional solution, and against a glyph-based solution.  ...  Would another glyph-based design have fared better? We chose the Healey et al.'  ...

Designing a better weather display

Colin Ware, Matthew D Plumlee
2012 Information Visualization  
We describe a set of interactive weather displays which enable users to view two meteorological scalar fields of various kinds and a field showing wind patterns.  ...  Weather maps commonly display several variables at once, usually a subset of the following: atmospheric pressure, surface wind speed and direction, surface temperature, cloud cover, and precipitation.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors wish to thank John Kelly for advice on matters pertaining to meteorology and Alan Hubbe for implementing a preliminary version of this design.  ...
