Collaborated with Tzi Wu and Xiaomeng Tang (Parsons Design & Technology MFA students), we visualized the whole amounts of historical UFO sightings index by using the data listed on Wikipedia. (UFO sighting wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_reported_UFO_sightings)
We wanted to present a dataset that shows how people see and interpret unexplained phenomenon of daily life, which UFO and aliens could be the symbolic representatives that illustrate the idea. The final map shows bubble charts on the world map which represents the numbers of UFO sighting by each location. Also, viewers can see the entire features UFO sighting has been exponentially increasing as time goes by. Also, users can simply see the change of the amount of in UFO sightings by dragging a timeline bar in this interactive map.
