why is weather data so important? There is no doubt that weather plays a major role in all human life, and extreme variations cause personal distress, disrupt economies and can even destroy life. But how do you turn the raw data from a weather satellite into knowledge and how can prediction help to shape the understanding of climate change? Let's find out during a very special edition of the DataViz meetup at the EUMETSAT headquarter in Darmstadt.
As an appetizer for the DataViz Hackathon "Weather Data in Action" on June 10th/11th EUMETSAT, the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites, will host a special DataViz meetup at their headquarter in Darmstadt. Have a look at their mission control room and learn how to process 2 petabytes of weather data. More details will follow soon.
