National Data Buoy Center: wind data along the Chesapeake

This definition constantly updates live wind data from buoys along the Chesapeake Bay.  The wind speed is represented by circles around the buoys that are proportional to wind speed.  Wind speed is also represented as a mesh topography, with height proportional to wind speed at each buoy along the bay.
