This visualization of global surface temperatures from November 2014 starts with a local view of the United States and then zooms out to see the global color-coded map. Blue represents colder then normal temperatures and red represents warmer.

Residents of the eastern United States know that the temperature was colder then the average temperature in November 2014. This data visualization of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) Global temperature anomalies for January of 2014 show the United States and then zooms out to show the global picture. Temperature anomalies indicate how much warmer or colder it is than normal for a particular place and time. For more information on the GISTEMP, see the GISTEMP analysis website located at:
