The Griffith University Centre of Digital Experimentation (GCODE) Presents:
Vholoce: Weather Visualiser
A net artwork merging meteorological science, and digital artwork. Vholoce*: Weather Visualiser uses real-time weather data to create a series of visualizations
intended to both artistically interpret weather conditions, and create new methods of understanding weather data. Working with talented programmer Rory Hering, Griffith University lecturer Jason Nelson created the weather visualiser as a prelude to future data visualization projects. Specifically, Jason and Rory are seeking interested parties to collaborate in developing a visualiser for Australian water data.
The weather visualiser lets the user choose cities from Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. Those citys current weather conditions (numbers representing temperature, humidity, pressure, wind, weather description) are then loaded into five different visualizations: Prose:Poetics, Animated, Molecular, Abstract:Noir, and Video.
*Vholoce is the Native American Creek tribe word for cloudy.
