Past Atlantic Storm Tracks

Added By Infochimps
The National Weather Service (NWS) maintains historical Atlantic Ocean hurricane weather data in a format that can be exploited by Graphic Information System (GIS) software. Using KML/KMZ formats, it takes the numbers and words from the rows and columns in databases and spreadsheets and puts them on a map. This data file contains information about named and unnamed Altantic tropical storms and hurricanes from 1851 to 2006. Once downloaded, the file can be decompiled by decade and by year in a a KML/KMZ GIS viewer.
