Weatherize is a real time weather data visualization. It uses Yahoo Weather API to fetch meteorological info for a given town choosen by users via Twitter by a conventional hashtag in the form #wtrzcityname.

The system returns temperature, humidity and wind speed at that precise moment.

Data are used to draw geometrical shapes on a projected surface whose vertex follow an hidden grid mapped onto the real object using a simple dedicated interface for the Ipad.

The amount of shapes represents local temperature, the color represents weather conditions, the degree of opacity represents the local humidity and the speed of movement represents wind speed.
