I'm currently working on my next book for Three.js and one of the chapters deals with visualizing open data. When looking around for data that I could use, I ran across a set of data from the NOAA. Through this site you can download a set of monthly precipiation reports for the whole world in a gridded format.
Welcome to Smartjava.org. My name is Jos Dirksen, I work as Enterprise Architect for Malmberg, a large Dutch publisher of educational content. I like talking, reading, presenting and writing about technology. On this website you can find additional information relating to the books I've written:
- SOA Governance in Action, published by Manning
- Open Source ESBs in Action , published by Manning
It's been a while since I updated this Blog (half a year) but a lot has happened this year. I've switched jobs from JPoint to Malmberg, wrote a book on Three.js and most important, became dad for the second time of a beautiful daughter (Amber, born the 20th of August 2013). In the next couple of months I'll start posting more and more articles since time seems to be freeing up now that Amber finally starts sleeping a little bit better.
On this page you can find the latest set of articles I've written for this blog. For an overview of all the articles, you can use the link in the menu.
