Why does data play a vital role to the life of a kiteboarder surfing beneath the Golden Gate bridge?

The San Francisco bay waters have a silent force that affects all object within it. For the past 9 years, I gained significant experience with struggling to navigate, understand and predict the tidal current conditions when sailing out of Crissy Field. This talk explores user-centered tidal data visualization on mobile devices focusing on the San Francisco Bay. Come to learn about next-level archaic and contemporary ways of environmental data visualization, and how technology can be used to help users safely traverse the bay.
