    Semiotics – Wind

    View the Wind Map by Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg

    No words. Just look at the black and white patterns.
    Instantly, one can identify:

    Wind
    Wind Speed
    Wind Direction
    Wind Currents
    Spatial Patterns of Wind
    Spatial Relationships to Places (Geographies, Built Environments, Objects)
    Wind Cause and Effect
    Wind Source
    Wind Density
    Wind Change
    Wind Near Me
    Wind Near You
    Comparisons of Wind Patterns
    Danger & Risk
    Opportunity & Potential Reward
    Air Resistance
    Air Acceleration
    Wind Power Generative Potential
    Wind Duration
    Movement of Particles

    Wind is But a Single Variable Within a System of Related Variables:

    Sunlight
    Clouds
    Algae & Biomes
    Vegetation
    Man Made Chemicals
    Carbon
    Temperature
    Climates
    Vertical Layers & Convections
    Particulate
    Moisture
    Emissions
    Absorbtions
    Environments (Mountains, Deserts, Oceans etc.)
    Pavement
    Atmosphere

    Imagine seeing it all put together, the living system that drives wind, that is affected by wind, that is systemically irrevocably linked to wind, on one computer screen, displayed any way you want it to be displayed. What would you want. Whatever your answer, that is what we at Y Worlds want to do, for you, for us, for everyone and everything. Not just for wind, but for everything complex, everything important, everything that advances our NETS potential.
