For our project, we are visualizing the weather on Mars in a way that’s tangible to people here on Earth. We built a NodeJS web app that pulls Mars weather data from the open source {MAAS} API. Our web app converts and displays the most current weather data available, while also allowing users to explore historical data. A clean interface was designed to present a large amount of data in a format that doesn’t overwhelm the user, and in a way that makes the data intuitively discoverable.

This project is solving the Wish You Were Here challenge.


The goal of the Mars Watchtower project is to allow users to easily explore data about Mars weather.
