We present a novel methodology to process hurricane data to be ready for display in Microsoft Live Labs Pivot. We describe the complexity of hurricane data files, which makes gleaning information out of them difficult. Hurricane data files contain a significant amount of information pertaining to hurricanes, however it is a poor representation of data. We present an algorithm for a parser to extract information out of data files and generate a CXML formatted file compatible with Microsoft Live Labs Pivot for a more appealing and therefore more useful statistical representation. We show how historical data from past hurricanes can be modified for representation.
