storm tracts are in the form of arcs.


Purpose: Data is courtesy of Chris Landsea (Colorado State University). The
North Atlantic 'best track' is maintained by the forecasters and researchers at
the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Fl. Free access of this data and
documentation were provided by Dr. Robert Sheets - Dir. of NHC.

PROCESS DESCRIPTION: Hurricane information was downloaded from the Purdue
historical hurricane site. The textual information was imported into Excel,
cleaned and saved as a .dbf file. This file was then converted to shapefiles
with attributes using a script in ARC/INFO 7.1.1. The shapefiles were
aggregated by decade and converted to shapefiles in ArcView 3.0a.
