‘Meteorites: Earth Impact’ is an attempt to visualize meteorites that have impacted earth in the past. The Meteoritical Society has a massive database of all the recorded meteorites that have collided with Earth dating as far back as 2500 BCE, providing the most comprehensive public picture of known meteorite collisions. This visualization is my first attempt at an interactive visualization and was built for the ‘Visualizing Meteorites’ contest held by Visualizing.org in the month of May 2013.
Dataset used: Meteorite Landings
I treated this project as a way of playing with the various visualization tools available and I had a lot of fun working on it. The time duration was 1 week.
