Reshaping data

Reshaping data

My colleague had a set of temperature readings with one row per date. Another colleague needed to visualize the data in a tool that required one row per day of the month with columns for each year value. He was working with the data in a SQL database, but neither of us knew off the top of our heads the best way to do this. This gist is a number of examples of how to approach the problem.
