Charts are super fun!
Putting some time in on an old project - plotting NOAA swell data. I've built a Rails app to fetch, clean and import the data bulletins. This is how I'm thinking the front end will look.
Having explored charting libraries, flot is looking like the best candidate to bring it all together.

Nice splines you got there Ray.
Awesome. I just stumbled across the NOAA feeds the other day, stoked they exist.
@Dylan - how did you find them? The bulletins aren't easily parsed. It would be great if they had a JSON format available. But I guess they are free, so one can't complain.
Are these the feeds you're using? http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/rss_access.shtml. I haven't done anything with them yet, but I'd love to at some point. There are a few RSS->JSON converters about, but then you'd also want to convert the feed items' descriptions to JSON following the '<strong>key</strong>value' thing they've got going there.
Hey, how would you feel about collaborating on a rubygem for working with NOAA feeds?
No I was using the ascii bulletins. I will check these out though.
Collaborating on a gem sounds great!
