Hello folks, Recently while going through a research paper I happened to come across a plot showing the hurricane track(figure attached). Can anyone say how it is plotted or anyone has any experience of plotting such figures? Also, I want to know what are such types of plots called.
The information for this plots is provided by a meteorological service in a Geospatial Format. A common format for weather data is ESRI shape file format (SHP). I gave a presentation on an introduction to modelling hurricane losses a couple of years ago (YouTube). There is a link to the code here. An example example storm track with intensity bands that was produced is:
Hope this helps.
