Wind Rose and Polar Bar Charts in Python

https://plotly.com/python/wind-rose-charts/
The graphing library for Python, plotly, allows programmers to make wind roses, which are graphs that show how often and how strongly the wind blows from each direction. The circular graph was originally modeled after a compass rose.
This page shows two ways to generate these polar histograms. It is left to the reader to generate the bins for the histogram. Contact EnergyTeachers.org for software for that.

Wind roses for thousands of locations around the world. Yearly and monthly wind roses appear as default, but you can make custom roses for any time period, and constrain the data to a subset of each day, like 8AM-11AM. Contact EnergyTeachers.org for more data-processing and teaching ideas.

This 15-minute activity explores potential and developed wind capacity by state as well as challenges that Texas has faced to develop wind power. Students use a geographic information system (GIS) to observe and analyze wind patterns across the United States of America.
An instruction sheet includes a link to an interactive map, analytic questions, and concrete directions to use the map, and references to similar studies.
