The FIFA Development Globe visualizes FIFA’s development work across the world. The development projects are placed on a 3D globe as triangle based constructions, and can be filtered by their indvidual program types. The globe itself is based on an elegant adaptive subdivision process, representing country shapes in abstracted geometry. In addition, financial assistance budget spending per country and a timeline of events as well as some background information on the FIFA development programs can be accessed within the application.
Augmented Reality Sandbox with Real-Time Water Flow Simulation (by okreylos)
Video of a sandbox equipped with a Kinect 3D camera and a projector to project a real-time colored topographic map with contour lines onto the sand surface. The sandbox lets virtual water flow over the surface using a GPU-based simulation of the Saint-Venant set of shallow water equations.
MAFI is a web plataform composed by independant microdocumentaries that ponder about Chile’s current state. The work format is simple: a stil camara with a fixed composition, short duration and clean direct sound recording. The objective is to capture fragments of the national contingency, and with these to create a filmic map of our reality. These films, from all over Chile, marked by the personal views of the authors presented in clean and highly estimulating images offer the viewer a space to reflect and discuss our history, present and times ahead.
New York City’s greenhouse gas emissions as one-ton spheres of carbon dioxide gas (by CarbonVisuals)
In 2010 New York City added 54 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (equivalent) to the atmosphere, but that number means little to most people because few of us have a sense of scale for atmospheric pollution.
A creative cartographical approach to election spending. This animated map is based on money spent by SuperPACs and other outside groups on presidential political ads between April 10th and October 10th 2012.
Child marriage affects one in three girls in the developing world (excluding China), and predominantly impacts the poorest, least-educated girls, the majority of whom live in rural areas. Girls who get married early get pregnant early, putting their lives—and the lives of their children—at great risk.
