The image that I caught my attention is Edmonds Halley’s 1686 chart showing trade winds and Monsoons on a world map. I’m personally a visual learner therefore I’m all for maps and graphs. This image provides a lot of important information, especially given the time that it was created. With the new technology and new information that we have learned since 1686, certainly there is information that can be added.

If I was to add anything, I would add maybe the frequency of these storms; maybe by seasons according to the location. I do question the accuracy of the information provided. The design is simple and I feel that it only display what is needed.
