Ambient installation

As an alternative, immersive approach to experience the wind prediction data used in Project Ukko, this ambient visualisation cycles through all 51 sets of data.

It displays over 100,000 data values across the world using a custom (azimuthal equidistant) map projection. The projection continuously rotates and varies in zoom level.
