It's so nice to work with a WMS that functions, let alone provides really interesting and beautiful data. You can browse the full set of layers in this feed at NASA's previewer page. For more information on pooling data like this with your organization's business/operational data, in the context of time and charting visualizations, drop us a line!And here is the path directly to the feed's getCapabilities (which you can paste into the Ad-Hoc feeds menu in VFX.): http://neowms.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/wms/wms?version=1.1.1&service=WMS&request=GetCapabilities
This picture may seem vaguely familiar. That is because this is a full-size version of the Atlantic Hurricane Paths. Previous pictures were smaller, more zoomed-in pictures that didn’t have the timeline on the bottom.
