Title: Cyclone Center
Classify over 30 years of tropical cyclone data.
This citizen science project was about classifying cyclones that have been recorded over the world for the past 30 years. During the project I looked through many picture of storms and clicked the classification I thought it belonged under. I choose between cyclone storms that were embedded, shear, eye, and curved. I also got to choose the center of the storm and/or the eye size. This helped by analyzing different storms from a human eye view. I choose this project because I am very fascinated with weather and storms and like the complexity of different cyclones. I think it’s rewarding being able to put my opinion into analyzing this kind of data. I like that you are able to learn about the different types of cyclones by scrolling down and reading the article on the actual storm. Overall, it was fascinating learning experience.
