I expanded the code I found from this blog to be able to include Pacific storms.
Also, I used ggmap and ggplot2 instead of the base package… just because I think it is pretty 🙂
This plot is storm paths up until today (10/13/2014) (minus Gonzalo… I can’t figure out why it is missing).
Anyway – The plot needs some cleaning (and a title), but I just threw it together as I was playing around with the path data.
If you are interested in the code, shoot me a message.
