THE SHIPPING FORECAST
A graphic translation of the the shipping forecast:
This print offers a huge amount of information arranged beautifully in dials, helping you to decipher the poetic brilliance of the BBC's infamous shipping forecast.
In this data-packed illustration the shipping zones are set out on a mercator projection map of waters, around which are dials displaying the Beaufort scale winds in knots, sea states and movement of pressure systems. Visibility terms, precipitation types, and pressure tendencies among other useful seafaring tidbits are added in for good measure!
