Service Description: This map displays all Hurricane, Tropical Storm, and Tropical Depression points in the Atlantic and East Pacific Basin's from 1851 to 2011. Tracks and points in the East Pacific are available from 1902 to 2011. The purpose is to show the dispersion and frequency of separate catergory strength hurricanes over time. The map also allows you to view either one or multiple categories of hurricanes at a time. Hurricane strength is shown by its Saffir-Simpson scale, which is displayed by track color and size. Stronger storms are shown with thicker tracks and brighter colors. Not all track points contain pressure information and are labeled with a 0. Storm Nature is classified by five abbreviation types (ET: Extra Tropical, DS: Disturbance, NR: Not Rated, SS: Sub Tropical, TS: Tropical Storm). Pop-ups contain specific storm information including date and time, wind speed, pressure, maximum category strength, and the US State at which a storm makes landfall. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) was the source for this data, which can be found here: ftp://eclipse.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/ibtracs/v03r04/all/shp/
