The data originated from the National Hurricane Center's archive of Tropical Cyclone Reports (http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/). This dataset was hand-scraped from best track tables in the individual tropical cyclone reports (PDF, HTML and Microsoft Word) by Jon Hobbs.
The Tropical Cyclone Reports had a variety of storm type designations and there appeared to be no consistent naming convention for cyclones that were not hurricanes, tropical depressions, or tropical storms. Many of these designations have been combined into the "Extratropical" category in this dataset.
