Wooden Ships Interactive

Featured in National Geographic as one of The Best Maps of 2016!

This my latest collaboration with Scott Farley and Starr Moss titled: Wooden Ships . This interactive was built for Geography 575 (Interactive Mapping) at the University of Wisconsin.

Built with D3 javascript library (among others), Wooden Ships explores European maritime activity and observations from 1750 to 1850. The data consists of logbook entries written by the captain of each ship. The location of each ship is spatially aggregated in hexagonal bins.

Also a NACIS Student Dynamic Map Award Winner!
