From Joel Graffman:
With this easy method for recording and displaying hurricane information, storm tracks are displayed on a world-view, high-resolution globe on which you can easily zoom in to any location. Bearing, distance, and ETA to any geographic location can be instantly displayed. The globe display also can be used as a general geographic aid for countries, cities, states, rivers, and lakes. A database of all Atlantic hurricanes from 1950 through 2001 is included, and you can easily get updates on current storms via FTP.
