Regular posting of High Resolution NOAA SST with WebGL

Shown here is one day AVHRR satellite SST anomaly data provided by NOAA. It has 1/4 degree (about 25km) resolution. They have a suggested form of acknowledgement, which is: NOAA High Resolution SST data provided by the NOAA/OAR/ESRL PSD, Boulder, Colorado, USA, from their Web site at http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/. I have a script to get updates - I am lagging slightly so that the script does not get messed around by late postings.

The plot uses WebGL to provide interactivity. The globe is a trackball - you can drag to rotate, and use the right button with vertical motion to zoom. The method is described in this post. The picture can take a few seconds to appear. This page challenges browser and video card capabilities; Firefox and Chrome work for me, but not IE. You could try this version, which does not have the blog overheads.
