“Billions of Birds Migrate” is a data-driven feature showing the journey of several species of migratory birds across the western hemisphere, through text, audio, photography, and animated maps. This article breaks down the design, development, and data processing needed for the project.
We wanted to visualize Cassini’s journey with 3D graphics as it made its many orbits around the Saturn system, with stops along the way corresponding to the locations where Cassini captured specific images. This article details how I acquired NASA data and the steps I took to make it the basis of a web-based, WebGL-via-three.js 3D graphics presentation.
In our digital feature, A Vanishing Aquifer, we take you through a massive underground water basin in the central US, known as the High Plains Aquifer, and show how it's changed. We do this using a series of responsive and dynamic maps and graphics. I'll walk you through the construction of the project.
