Data visualisation of UK Temperature

I recently produced a visualisation of UK rainfall over the past 100 years using data supplied by the Met Office and have now produced a similar chart for UK temperature.

Besides the different dataset, there's a couple of differences to the rainfall chart:

  • two colours are used: blue to represent cooler temperatures and red warmer
  • two datasets are selectable: mean temperature and max temperature

As with the rainfall chart, there's a slider to single out the warmer months.

The chart is implemented using D3 and my circular heat chart component.
