i am trying to learn hadoop. I am using definitive guide, i guess the example taken in the book is mostly the Max Temperature application. I want to try this out, but i am unable to find a sample data to check it. where can i get some sample data for it, in the way it is defined in the book. I checked NCDC website, but the data format looks quite different from what is it shown in the book. any pointers?
