Global Warming

First sample of using Qlik Sense to chart global temperature anomalies, this time using data directly from the NASA Goddard Space Institute. This data set is perhaps their most highly-recommend, publicly-available reference point.

In this chart, I'm only showing anomalies by latitude from North Pole to South Pole since 1980 and thru 2016. However, in the full-detail, official chart (attached), you can see data all the way back to 1880. This will be the 1st part of a 3-part series I'll be posting. In the 2nd part, I'll try to include the carbon dioxide and methane (CO2 & CH4), atmospheric concentrations, in parts per million. ...Qlik Sense could then show how data is associated. Finally, in 3rd part, I'd like to show Qlik's new ability to connect directly to statistical analytics using R for this data set.

Please visit NASA's Goddard Space Science Temperature Analysis Center for more info., including the best, publicly-available data in .txt & .csv format for easy download:
