Cartoon weather

January 19, 2004

Dunstan Orchard has done something rather amazing on his website. The picture header you see there is based on a panoramic view from the top of his house. He illustrated 90 versions of the panoramic picture, each one depicting a different weather condition, time of day, and moon phase. The picture that is displayed depends on an XML feed from weather.com which corresponds to his city's real-time weather conditions. Even the sheep in his pictures pay attention to the weather. While this idea is not new, his implementation is both impressive and inspiring. A great site all-around.
