100 Years of Nova Scotian Weather Online and Interactive… and Then Some

I just finished recreating a Tableau “viz” that is a series of online, interactive dashboards with weather information for eight places in Nova Scotia from the past 100 years (1917-2016):

  • Halifax
  • Liverpool
  • Yarmouth
  • Greenwood

  • Amherst
  • Antigonish
  • Sydney

They are on the Tableau Public site under my profile listing all my vizzes so far. Not many but the start of something good!

I also have dedicated weather vizzes for:

from reasonably good data sets that existed so I didn’t have to kill myself getting all the data from nearby weather stations and cobbling them all together! I had over 1600 files for those 8 places! Well, Halifax didn’t have a great data set but since so many Nova Scotians live in the area, including me, I didn’t want to leave them out.

Haliscapes and Harbourscapes

Below are some of favourite photos among the many I had taken prior to 2010 of the Halifax Regional Municipality, mostly around the harbour close to which I live. Brief descriptions are below the gallery.
