Data visualization project
There a plenty of ways to demonstrate data to people. However, usually when it comes to statistics or graphics consumers get bored pretty quickly.
Therefore journalists try to invent new ways of showing data. Visualization in my opinion is the most attractive tool of doing so since everyone loves beautiful and informative pictures and videos.
This is the video that demonstrates the world airline traffic in 24-hour time-lapse. It looks good because airline traffic is something that can relate to everyone and at the same time cannot be observed pretty easily. If it was said by numbers and words, it would sound boring, but with the help of visualization people can get curious and interested in this kind of data.
