For assignment 4, I want to create a UK’s weather map with including major cities, like London, Manchester, Birmingham and Sheffield, etc. The weather data should include some key information, like wind speed, temperature, and sunrise and sunset, etc.

Compare with CSV imported method, I’m interesting in online data stream. I think it would be better because online live stream provide data in realtime. In terms of visualisation, i think it would be better to have a whole UK map in the bottom and each cities placed in its geographical location. When you move mouse to each cities, weather information displayed.
