Solution: We decided to produce the timeline as a circle as it was easier to show on screen and allowed us more freedom to place data onto it. We used major events that happened around the world through history, from 1920 to 2050, to put the time period into context and created pictograms we could place onto the timeline. These included events such as the Empire State building being completed and the Berlin Wall being knocked down.
We also placed relevant information on the graphs to show the importance of the barrage. To emphasize the power generating potential, we plotted a history of non-renewable energy on the outside of the circle, with renewable energy placed on top, finally including the energy the barrage would produce on top of that. We offset this by placing the CO2 emissions produced on the inside of the circle to show the growing need for renewable energy sources.
