    Top down visual of near live wind trails in the US. Really neat!

    Now we just need it overlayed on google maps!

    Thank you, Greg, for the tip. Great wind trail map, and I agree with you, I'd love it to be integrated into Google Earth.

    Cheers, Bobbywhy

    Doesn't work, it says to use chrome, they designed it not to work with IE? Yes, I like IE 7, I like the tools, makes it more user friendly for me.

    Good idea, Greg, to bump this great wind map for all of us...members and visitors alike. It's a remarkable view of our winds in real time (+ or - a few minutes).
