Data Visualization

This is just a short and sweet post about data visualization.  Over the last week or two I have been trying to display alerts for the next version of Space Weather, in a smart and meaningful way.  In earlier versions of my app, I displayed only the most current alert in plain text and only in black and white.  This time I am determined to give them a little more oomph.  Here’s my first attempt:

I am going to continue this theme throughout the app.  I would still like to clean up the list of alerts somewhat, but I think it’s a good start to where I want to be in future versions of Space Weather.
