I'm reading the "http://flowingdata.com/" - blog and found there a nice application:
Does somebody have other "interesting blogs" in our area of expertise
Thanks for sharing, I found this www.google.com/.../explore very interesting.
Very interesting... do you happen to know what is feeding the Google "public data explorer" with data? Would that be GData feeds (a rather "closed" protocol used on top of Google API based applications)? Or did they finally made the move to OData (an open standard)?
Speaking of which, all of the Windows Azure Data Marketplace (which includes some of the same kinds of data sets, but also others that you pay for) is powered by OData. There are various OData reader applications out there, the most exciting one being the upcoming Project Crescent (team.silverlight.net/.../project-crescent).
Now the question to the community: wouldn't be exciting to have access to PI System data via an OData feed, so that you can mix and match it with all kinds of other data sets?? (re: my blog post @ vcampus.osisoft.com/.../pidata-odata.aspx).
Looking forward to hearing from you all!
Wolfgang - I love the first link you got there.
Weather data registered world-wide back to the 50's. That's pretty cool! (You'd think they had PI there... hehe)
I noticed that the main data source was met.no - the Norwegian Meteorological Institute. They are also behind the weather forecast side www.yr.no which also is used a lot around the world because of their accurate forecast models.
Retrieving data ...
