The weather is everywhere and always. That makes for a lot of data. This talk will walk you through how you can use MongoDB to store and analyze worldwide weather data from the entire 20th century in a graphical application. We’ll discuss loading and indexing terabytes of data in a sharded cluster, and optimizing the schema design for interactive exploration. MongoDB also natively supports geospatial indexing and querying, and it integrates easily with open source visualization tools. You'll learn high-performance techniques for querying and retrieving geospatial data, and how to create a rich visual representation of global weather data using Python, Monary, and Matplotlib.
