Warp 10 is the most advanced time series platform because of its data analysis capabilities. In this tutorial we will explore the IBTrACS sample dataset with the WarpScript language. Some may find it intimidating, at first, but through this tutorial you will understand how flexible, concise, powerful and tailored for time series it is.
As for appetizer, here are some of the results you can get with WarpScript.
You can find a correlation between pressure and wind speed.
Or you can draw tropical cyclones trajectories and wind intensities.
You will not be able to achieve the exact same results on the sandbox because we will only work on a sample of the IBTrACS. However, you will get very similar results if you dare to follow all the tutorial steps. If you really want to reproduce these, we give the steps to upload all the IBTrACS data on you own instance at the end of the tutorial.
Going Further One Step at a Time
To boldly go where no Data Scientist has gone before, we will embark you throught increasingly complex WarpScripts. Each one will try to answer a simple question and introduce new concepts, explaining them in the comments. These WarpScripts are classified from Category 1 to Category 5 as the Saffir–Simpson scale.
