Stuart and I have been performing some routine maintenance of the Old Weather engines here at Zooniverse HQ (swabbing the decks etc). As we were messing about with the database rigging, we realised that we could quickly create a map of the current positions of the entire Old Weather fleet. So here it is: a snapshot of Old Weather right now.
You can see that almost all of the ships are to be found in water (phew!) and those that aren’t are often river boats. We cannot explain the boat in the middle of Greenland. We’d like to provide this kind of snapshot – a sort of Old Weather Live – as we currently do for Moon Zoo. Keep a lookout for updates along these lines.
