We’ve all seen quite a buffet of Google Maps Mashups. They run from the sublime to I have to reload the browser to get rid of them. In the midst of a bit of a dust-up on another site about web-based weather products, I was reminded of the one I keep on my desktop throughout hurricane season (13 days from now) called IBISEYE. It’s a product of the Miami Herald Tribune, and it is excellent.
In addition to current situation awareness on all Atlantic lows, its hurricane tracking (and historical track and extent data) are very well presented. I commend it to you. It is a bit Florida-centric in the peripheral data, but for the core information I find it the best thing available. If you use iGoogle, it can be set as a desktop gadget.
