Wind Vector Map

An example showing a vector array map showing wind speed and direction using wedge as shape for mark_point and angle encoding for the wind direction. This is adapted from this corresponding Vega-Lite Example: Wind Vector Map.

import altair as alt
from vega_datasets import data

source = data.windvectors()

alt.Chart(source).mark_point(shape="wedge", filled=True).encode(
        "dir", scale=alt.Scale(domain=[0, 360], scheme="rainbow"), legend=None
    angle=alt.Angle("dir", scale=alt.Scale(domain=[0, 360], range=[180, 540])),
    size=alt.Size("speed", scale=alt.Scale(rangeMax=500)),
