The world from above

"The Netherlands From Above"; VPRO
"The Netherlands From Above" (Stamen, San Francisco/VPRO) is a 10-part TV series showing the country from a bird's perspective. The online platform adds sophisticated interactive maps to it, providing spectacular data visualizations. Mobility, trade, housing prices, wild animals, travel times and cell phone activity during daytime, even flooding heights in case of catastrophe - every single map can be controlled by sliders and is displayed in real time.

A huge amount of data had to be processed and designed, and the result is stunning. A new dimension of data journalism.
