Real-Time Data from Mt. Everest
Sam Brooks Hyde works with a team at National Geographic to bring real-time data from Mount Everest right to your screen. The technology they use visualizes data to help people experience and understand the world. A recently installed network of weather stations on and near Everest, now the highest operating stations in the world, provides real-time measurements of temperature, barometric pressure, wind speed and direction, and transmits this information to the team at National Geographic.
