In late 2009 the UK Government launched an Open Data initiative, headed by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, with a call for innovations challenging the developer community to make this data more accessible. In response, Geo.me Solutions is showcasing a number of open data demonstrations using map-based visualisations.
The data set represented in the demos below was released by the UK Met Office in December 2009.It consists of a network of individual land stations designated by the World Meteorological Organization for use in climate monitoring. The data shows monthly average temperature values for more than 1,500 land stations.
