Cinematic Mapping

I recently posted a great visualisation showing 24 hours of shipping in the Baltic. I liked it for its cinematic appeal (was a bit less keen on the music though), and said that such work goes a long way to broaden the appeal of data visualisation. 422 are the masters of this art, producing a great number of innovative visualisations for TV programmes around the world. I first saw their work on the “Britain from Above” series shown on the BBC and have been amazed at what they have been able to produce ever since. The video above is a montage of some of their projects. Enjoy!
