Can you make 1948 Pacific typhoon season track maps, PleaseEdit

1948 Pacific typhoon season track maps are deficiency Aretgil (talk) 09:44, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

There is only one main data set for the years 1945 through 1948 so I can't change anything in that aspect, however if you want better quality images, that I can do. Supportstorm (talk) 10:49, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
I mean wikimedia commons does not have Pacific typhoon season track maps in 1948 of each storm.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:1948_Pacific_typhoon_season_track_maps Aretgil (talk) 11:35, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:

  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Thank you.

Hurricane ImagesEdit

Two things, when you add hurricane track maps from the National Hurricane Center, go an image like Storm Name 5-day (or 3-day)track map.gif and upload a new version there. Also, when you upload images of storms name it Storm Name XX Month Year.jpg as per naming conventions for other storms. --Joan97 (talk) 19:33, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

Hello, Supportstorm!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

The image is from the GOES-14 satellite which is owned by NOAA. It was found in a index of published images kept on this web site [1]. The land and water is from Blue Marble, Next Generation which is produced by NASA. Here's the link to that [2]. All of these sources are works found from a government source, therefore are in the Public Domain.

Color GOES ImagesEdit

Hello,

I was wondering where you got the data to make the coloured GOES images (as found in the 1982 Pacific hurricane season). Also, if you have any spare time, could you explain how to make those coloured images?

Thanks

Iune(talk) 00:48, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Here's the link for the satillite data [3] in the link are years of tropical cyclone seasons. The links for the cyclone image are not labled by name, but by a letter. Here's an example - 1982011S11140/ The S in the name tells the cyclone was in the southern hemisphere. N means the cyclone was in the northern hemisphere. Go to the AVHRR visiable data and that where the name of the cyclone and the time the image was taken is. Click on the png. file of perfered time and save it. The next step I use Photoshop with. The colored land and sea background is here: [4] once uploaded you will need to srink the image to about 10327 X 5164 px. You change the png. to RBG color and drag it over to the world image and you overlay it to where the cyclone happened at the time. Crop the image, and set the opacity to 100% on layer 1. In the next step I like to use the clone stamp tool with these settings; Mode = Screen Opacity = 44% Flow = 100%. I choose an area on the background image that corresponds with the satellite image, and I color the image with one layer of color. Afterwords I correct contrast and set the saturation up 37%. And if the image is a bit dark or light, I adjust levels to a correct setting. Flatten image and save. You can undo history to repeat steps with another image as the clone stamp still has a correct location of the world image. It's a bit long but that's the way I create the images. :) Supportstorm (talk) 12:16, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

I made File:Hollanda 10 February 1994.jpg. Does this work?

Iune(talk) 16:33, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

This is very good. I also foregot to tell you, if you cannot judge where a storm is, you can use Google Earth and with the KML file that goes along with the image, and that using equalize will sometimes give you a better image. Nice job. :) Supportstorm (talk) 17:09, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

1990 Hurricane Season ImagesEdit

Hello,

I am sorry, I checked the season article on English Wikipedia and none of the storms had the new AVHRR images. Therefore, I got the images, and used Commonist to upload them. Only then did I notice that you had already uploaded the images.

Sorry, 67.87.73.171 23:30, 10 December 2010 (UTC) (User:Iune)

It's ok. I guess from now on I will need to add the images to the articles after I upload them. Supportstorm (talk) 04:04, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

Flattening MODIS ImagesEdit

Hello,

I was wondering how you flatten the MODIS Terra and Aqua images for use in the articles. For example, File:Bianca 26 jan.jpg. Do you use a specific program or Photoshop?

Thanks,

Iune(talk) 19:56, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

No, the cyclone passed by a subset on the MODIS Rapid Response website. The subset are flattened for other website that need the images. I used Photoshop to correct contrast and remove noise, but I wish there was a software that could flatten the real-time images, that would be very helpful. Hope this clears things up a little. Supportstorm (talk) 01:20, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Oh, Thanks for the clarification though! — Iune(talk) 21:53, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

A new standard per WP:TROPEdit

Hello there, and I appreciate your uploading hi-resolution MODIS data. In the Wikiproject: Tropical Cyclones, some of us discussed about images. In the future we wish to see more cyclone images, and as now MODIS data is easier to acquire, the project hoped to have a standard size for images. And that is 5000*5000px and 250m/px. This is because some storms are larger than others but in the nature of their image, they look a lot smaller. I hope I cleared some stuff for you and if you need any help, just go to my talk page. Cheers. HurricaneSpin (talk) 16:46, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Typhoon Dot images need better sourcingEdit

Hi there. I'm doing a review of Typhoon Dot (1989) and I can't make sense of the sourcing of File:Dot jun 9 1989 0620Z.jpg and File:Dot jun 10 1989 0610Z.jpg (both used in the article). The source statement indicates that this is a composite, but I'm struggling to figure out how that would be possible, and I can't find anything on either source that would help generate those images. Since you uploaded them, could you please clarify exactly where/how those files came to be? Thanks, Sven Manguard (talk) 19:14, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

I just checked it out, and yeah I know what you mean. The NASA link was changed over the summer and I had failed to update it. I guess I'll be going through and updating all the images on the correct source location. Thanks for telling me. Supportstorm (talk) 22:51, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
I'm a bit confused as to how the two sources combined. Was one overlayed onto the other? Is this generated by software using a data feed? I'm more concerned that it dosen't really give an indication as to how the image came into being as I am concerned that the links are dead. If the process is explained, the rest of it can be put together 50 years from now long after the links are dead and people have stopped updating them. Sven Manguard (talk) 03:10, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
I've answered how they are made in the section "GOES Images" asked by Iune above, but I have modified it since. The links are not dead, I'm in the process of updating the source of the color land data that I use to make the image. The foreground image comes from AVHRR data of various satellites collected from 1978 to present. All sources come from government programs so I doubt they will expire anytime soon.
If you need more info, here is a link to the HURSAT web page that explains where the data comes from and its uses.

How is this? Sven Manguard (talk) 21:54, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
That's a good way of providing the information on image creation. I just need to update it to my current way of make the images, since I've changed it several times since then. Supportstorm (talk) 23:16, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

HeyEdit

I was just wondering - would you be able to do anything with this image to try and get it looking decent?. It seems to be the only decent image of Susan at its peak intensity as it was moving away from Vanuatu. Thanks.Jason Rees (talk) 06:18, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

This is what I got, but given the poor lighting and resolution of the image, I don't see much use for it. Glad to help anyway. Supportstorm (talk) 22:53, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
Thanks - i know its got poor lighting but its the best image i could find while Susan was at its peak intensity just before it recurved away from Vanuatu. Unless of course you can do something with this.Jason Rees (talk) 23:32, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
Not much can really be done, the image hasn't been projected to eliminate image distortion, so I cannot superimpose it on a map. On another note, I was looking through the AVHRR images of Susan and did find other images of her while near peak intensity that were decent, Jan 5 0356Z, Jan 5 1910Z, and Jan 6 0345Z. Just a suggestion Supportstorm (talk) 01:06, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
The second one would be good if you could get some of the brightness away. The first one may also be good subject to you getting rid of the bright white crap.Jason Rees (talk) 16:53, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
Just been chatting to User:Cyclonebiskit and he reckons the second ones gonna be the best one.Jason Rees (talk) 15:26, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
Well I processed the image earlier and there's nothing I can do about the over exposed image because it has blown out highlights. Here's what I got. Supportstorm (talk) 19:17, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
Ok the image looks ok and it will do imo for the main image in the infobox for Susans article.Jason Rees (talk) 20:57, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

MODIS True Color ImagesEdit

Hi! I came across a tool described in a paper that creates true color MODIS images. Here is the link if you are interested: Here

Iune(talk) 21:00, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Out of all the time I've been searching for programs I've never came across this! Hopefully it's easier to use than other, either that or I need to get better at run such programs. Thanks :) 02:05, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
This is though stuff. I've managed to create a geo-rectified image but I have failed to generate a true colored image. Have you tried using this before? Supportstorm (talk) 05:11, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Distribution range in Myotis lucifugus (little brown bat) mapEdit

Hi. I just realize that the range of distribution of Myotis luucifugus (little brown bat) shown in wikipedia is not the resent one. The IUCN has the updated version of it.

http://maps.iucnredlist.org/map.html?id=14176

I made those file awhile ago using a book that was published in 1982 so I can imagine they're all outdated. You have my permission to remove or modify the files however you see fit. Supportstorm (talk) 10:58, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Rename request for File:1934_Atlantic_tropical_storm_10_track.pngEdit

Hello. I've recently adhered to one of your rename requests. Now your going in for one one rename request with the same characteristic:

  1. original file is uploaded by someone else- an admin.
  2. you're stating storm names have changed.
I hope you are sincere in requesting renames. If that indeed is the case,then why don't you discuss the list of file for reuploads and rename accordingly with the admin's consent? Hindustanilanguage (talk) 05:53, 15 September 2012 (UTC).
Alright, I'll see if that can be arranged as this will become an ongoing issue. Supportstorm (talk) 06:00, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
An ongoing issue is better than a clash with two users. Let's do things on a friendly note and amicably. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 06:25, 15 September 2012 (UTC).
If this is what I think it is, then its a complete non-issue. Supportstorm, are the new uploads (and rename requests) associated with HURDAT reanalysis? If so I have no problem with any of it. It may be easier for you to let me know what files need moving, as I can execute the moves more readily. I can also carry out any deletions that might be necessary due to he renumbering.--Nilfanion (talk) 08:36, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
Yes It was from the re-analysis. I was trying to update the 1934 Atlantic hurricane season with the new information and the track numbers became mixed up with the addition and subtraction of a few storms. So I guess the moving of the tracks in that season, that haven't already, would be helpful. Supportstorm (talk) 17:19, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
Smile I'm happy that we're moving in a cordial, friendly, cooperative and productive direction. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 05:26, 17 September 2012 (UTC).

Oversampling?Edit

Hi,

Just had a look at some of your most recent uploads. Glad to see someone using the track package has finally figured out what --res is for(!) That said, I'd rather not use the program at all (and do that in GIS instead, with much more control).

One concern I do have is with your satellite uploads: Higher resolution is not always better. If the source data is 5000px wide then the final version should be no higher than that, as however good the processing is its not going to add detail by upsampling. MODIS provides up to 250m resolution, at 45N that translates to 315px per degree.

There also seem to be a ton of artifacts in some files, eg File:Kyle 28 sept 2008 1800Z.jpg.--Nilfanion (talk) 09:34, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

I really didn't understand why that image became so distorted when I sent it through the program I was using. HDFLook indicated that it's native resolution was that and I didn't really see much of a quality difference upon review (except for the noise which I think is being caused by the color profile). Anyway I've stopped using the program until I can figure how to fix those issues. Thanks for the suggestion for the tracks! Supportstorm (talk) 17:12, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

File:98L Jul 24 2012 1415Z.jpgEdit

Hi,

I'm trying to give this image its proper sub-category. It is in the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season but the name 98L does not seems to fit that bassin. Could you help me there?

Pierre cb (talk) 11:46, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Hmm... I would consider Category:Atmospheric circulation or Category:Low pressure systems as a alternative, but 2012 Atlantic hurricane season is the most relative category for the image as it was a tropical system that formed in the Atlantic Ocean. I do realize it's not a official storm so I know why you're trying to find a better category. Supportstorm (talk) 22:54, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
Since I could not really locate it visually on the link you provided as source and I could not find any mention of it in the NHC event archives, I thought it was misplaced. On the other it could have been a precusor to one of the storms and I would have placed it in the proper subdirectory. With your answer, I will let it where it is now. Pierre cb (talk) 10:34, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Cyclone Ron imageEdit

Hi, Supportstorm. Could you generate an image of 1998's Cyclone Ron, using the same technique and sources that you used to construct images of other Southern Hemisphere cyclones, like Cyclones Susan, Hina and Agnielle? Preferably, at it's peak intensity. I'm constructing an article about it, and a better image than the one available here would be much appreciated. Thanks. ABC paulista (talk) 20:14, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Hope this image is what you were looking for. Good luck on the article. Supportstorm (talk) 23:27, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
Dude, is even better than I thought it would be! Thanks, man. ABC paulista (talk) 18:14, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Your magic is neededEdit

Hey man, I found some years ago this very interesting image in the South Pacific basin made by NESDIS, however, unfortunately, the quality of the image isn't that good. So, I wanna know if something can be done to make it looking better. Thanks. ABC paulista (talk) 21:41, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Yes, but as far as image quality no. I can make it look better, but it was saved as a .gif format so there's no way of recovering the lost color data. Want me do anything in particular with this image? Supportstorm (talk) 00:55, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
Do what is possible. At least, make the cyclones more visible. ABC paulista (talk) 13:44, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
Alright, well I definitely improved the contrast of the image, but like I said previously nothing can be done with color quality. Here it is. Supportstorm (talk) 17:05, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
Sorry to barge in on this conversation but im wondering if we could not create our own version of that image using by combining images.Jason Rees (talk) 18:06, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
Maybe, if the source to create the image exists, but I have so far been unable to locate any.Supportstorm (talk) 04:40, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Supportstorm, thanks for the improvement. It looks way better than the original. Jason Rees, I also tried to find something useful, but I failed even in finding the original souce of this image.ABC paulista (talk) 00:19, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

It was originally posted on this website owned by NOAA, but for whatever reason it has since been deleted. 05:51, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I know. Still, I didn't find the original URL on that site. ABC paulista (talk) 18:54, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
I didnt quite mean the original image - i kinda meant taking the IBTRACS base map and adding the IBTRACS imagery or something similar.Jason Rees (talk) 00:55, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
I've already tried that. GMS doesn't cover Ron or Susan on the dates that all three systems were active like in the image above. Supportstorm (talk) 12:38, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
And what about HURSAT and/or AVHRR imagery? Maybe there's something useful there to make a montage. ABC paulista (talk) 17:45, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
It worked with the AVHRR imagery. I've made a collage for the 5th and 7th. Supportstorm (talk) 18:45, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
The 7th looks the best in my opinion since it doesnt have any sharp diagonal areas.Jason Rees (talk) 18:49, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Yeah. I just don't like all the empty space in both images, but it's faster than waiting a day for CLASS to process my orders for the originals. IMO the 5th is better because I can crop the black area out if needed. Supportstorm (talk) 19:04, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Hmm... There is a way to add a background on these collages, or adjust them on a map to eliminate these black spaces and make them look more natural? ABC paulista (talk) 19:18, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes, would that be more preferable? Supportstorm (talk) 19:25, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes, if you have time. These black spaces give an "ugly" and unnatural aspect to the collages. ABC paulista (talk) 19:30, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Ok, so I replaced the black space with the map I used to colorize the images, unfortunately I'm getting the wiki bug that won't allow images to purge correctly. So double check for me to see if the images are updated. Supportstorm (talk) 19:45, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
The Jan 7th image is OK. But in the 5th, nothing chnaged. Not even in the log; both images look the same. ABC paulista (talk) 20:05, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Not much I can do at the moment. They really should have had this problem fixed a long time ago. :( Supportstorm (talk) 20:26, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
That's a pity... Still, thanks a lot for the hard work. Those satellite images are awesome! ABC paulista (talk) 20:40, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you :) Supportstorm (talk) 22:08, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Maybe we should upload your latest version at a different title, that i suspect would solve the problem.Jason Rees (talk) 22:54, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
No, if we wait long enough the server should eventually purge the image page and it should correct the display issue. Also you might try typing ?action=purge at the end of the url. That sometimes works. Supportstorm (talk) 01:10, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

It's not needed to reupload. The background appeared in both images. ABC paulista (talk) 18:21, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

The beginning part of the track is from the NRL, and the rest are from the advisories issued by the JMA. The only problem is the track is in 10-min winds, and the JTWC doesn't consider the storm tropical so I don't expect an update to their data. Supportstorm (talk) 15:13, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. And by the way, Have you found a better image to replace that?--Earth100 (talk) 14:03, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
The best image was taken by NPP Suomi, however I don't have the resources to view the data. Supportstorm (talk) 20:54, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
The NPP Suomi one dosen't look nice. Do you think you can color up the NRL IR peak intensity images?? If you do, choose the 918hpa images.--Earth100 (talk) 05:02, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

Annotated version of File:Haiyan_2013-11-08_0505Z.jpgEdit

Hi! there is NASA annotated version of File:Haiyan_2013-11-08_0505Z.jpg - http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/NaturalHazards/view.php?id=82348

Would you like to upload http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/NaturalHazards/view.php?id=82348 to commons? `A5b (talk) 23:20, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

It's not going to be as high in resolution as the one already on Wikimedia, however if you prefer the annotated version it can be uploaded. Supportstorm (talk) 23:24, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
There are GeoTIFF here too. I think it is much better for reader to see annotated version with coastlines marked. Such variant is standard for NOAA images. Without coastlines reader can't imagine nor proportions, neither exact location of the typhoon. `A5b (talk) 05:45, 12 November 2013 (UTC) Ok, on high-quality version annotation is almost invisible, so I think, we should have this http://eoimages.gsfc.nasa.gov/images/imagerecords/82000/82348/haiyan_amo_2013312.jpg image available to illustrate the Haiyan articles in different wikis. `A5b (talk) 05:48, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
The Geotiff is the original quality image without boundaries, and like you said the in 250m resolution image it is difficult to them. I'll upload the annotated MODIS image regardless however I might suggest this image from NPP Suomi that is high resolution and has easier to see annotation. Supportstorm (talk) 11:42, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

I switched to File:Haiyan_8_Nov_2013_0157Z.jpg - very low res, but with coastlines and easier to understand what is pictured. I use it as first image in ru: article. Thanks! `A5b (talk) 02:28, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Glad I could help :) Supportstorm (talk) 11:28, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

How to make the typhoon trackEdit

I want to know how can you make the track map photos. You make it by following Wikipedia:WikiProject Tropical cyclones/Tracks, or just photoshop it??? If you use the Wikiproject, can you teach me how to use that GIT? Thanks.

Also, how do you know the tracks of 1939 Pacific typhoon season? Yaviky

I used to use photoshop however I switched to the track generator which is so much easier and faster to use. Depending on what operating system you are using you will need to download some extra software. With Linux or Mac all you have to do is use your command terminal to run the program. With windows you will need to download Cygwin. Once you have met these requirements run this command from the terminal in your home directory:
 git clone git://github.com/titoxd/wptc-track.git

Or go here to download it directly if you don't have git:https://github.com/titoxd/wptc-track

Using Git will automatically download the program. After downloading run this command after moving into the tracks sub directory with the terminal.

gcc -g -Wall -Werror template.c tab.c track.c tcr.c atcf.c hurdat2.c hurdat.c md.c `pkg-config --cflags --libs cairo` -o track

This should compile the program and you are done installing. Message me back if you have any trouble thus far.

To answer your question on where the track data comes from. They are in IBTrACS located here:[5] Supportstorm (talk) 07:11, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
