SwellGrid Ocean Forecasts

Web Application Design & Development

SwellGrid challenges the conventional presentation of ocean weather forecast data, giving surfers and other ocean users the ability to compare data between related coastal regions in one UI. Critical forecast parameters are displayed in a javascript/d3 based SVG chart, and complemented by contour plots for the wider tracts of ocean. Animated transitions are employed to illustrate differences in data between each location.

SwellGrid was a personal project I designed and developed in my spare time, and served as a great way to further my skills with GRIB data, GRIB2JSON conversion, javascript charts, NCAR Command Language, and Ruby development. The application ran for some months, but ultimately I didn’t have the time available to properly promote the site.
