Making the graphic colors meaningful should well make it not only more pleasing to the eye but help to understand what's being depicted. If only others would think about what the viewer needs and would like to better understand quickly the data presented.

A visually appealing image will captivate the audience long enough to have the message sink in. The changing colors of autumn is captivating enough and should be advertised with comparable appeal. Great job!

This is a good point. Robert's graphic viz follows the general color patterns of autumnal foliage change, so it actually conveys the "feel" of the physical change while conveying data analysis at the same time. Very nice.

It's all about keeping the audience engaged with the material presented. A visually appealing image will captivate the audience long enough to have the message sink in. The changing colors of autumn is captivating enough and should be advertised with comparable appeal. Great job!

It seems the TV news and weather programs are increasingly looking to snazzy graphics to hold viewer attention. One can only hope that besides the fancy appearances the graphics are designed well so as to depict what they are supposed to show and make it easy for viewers to quickly comprehend the message.

I think they just hang rocks off the cliff so that they can dry off a rain storm. Just trying to stay positive here. 

Sorry, I can't help being cynical. Actually, Hanging Rock Mountain (from which the park is named) seems to get its name from the quartzite formation which juts out (i.e., hangs out) from near the peak like a chin.

Back to Robert's graphic visualization of autumnal foliage peaking ... a definite improvement, of course, over the original, but it runs so fast I could not easily correlate dates with points in the color progression.

That view from Hanging Rock State Park is spectacular. Makes me wonder how many guys they hanged there.

@PC I'm having her read what you wrote. She has quite a bit of time to plan, as her dream is to do in the summer of 2019.

One summer I did a cross-country trip something like the one your daughter has in mind. We saw beaches from Southern California to Boston and many, many points in-between. But our summer travel was limited to about 15 or 20 states and that was plenty.

I would ask which places and sites she would put at the top of her list. Then do some research to see how much time it takes to really see a place like D.C. or Yellowstone.

You got a gold mine here. Not only the tourism business up north but there's gotta be a tv station or two that would pay for this technology to jazz up their weather coverage (and predictive skills).
