Recipe of a Hurricane (Part 2) — Wind Vectors (Match Rendered)

This visualization was created in support of the 'Recipe for a Hurricane' live shot campaign. This is a visualization of Hurricane Erin on September 10, 2001. The visualization shows moving wind vectors from NASA's QuikSCAT spacecraft. This visualization was match-frame rendered (with alpha channel) to two other visualizations (winds and isosurfaces) and was intended to be shown edited together.
