Posted: US Growth Visualized Through Post ..

By Admin, May 30, 2012


I used the code that produced the video as a foundation to build interactivity into the map. The most significant visual change was the move to a dark background with bright data points. While I’m not entirely happy with the “civilization illuminating a dark continent” effect that might be communicated by this choice, I wanted to provide some variation in how opening dates were represented, and on monitors I’ve always found bright colors easier to distinguish from one another than dark.


What do you think?
