I came across this the other day looking to analyze global data over time, and
just thought that some folks might like to take a look.

I'm not sure if any of the data can be used to create scenes in POV-Ray, however
it's open source, and the tutorial may give folks some ideas about adapting some
of the code to SDL - since historically, so many Povvers have shown interest in
making globes, planets, solar systems, creating weather systems, etc.

Apparently you can step through time points to show an animation, but I haven't
yet gotten that to work (slowly enough to see it)

It looks like a (simplified?) GIS program like ArcGIS/ArcView. It 
doesn't tell so, but I would expect the use of voxels here...

Potentially interesting...
