meteorites 1900 - 2000

meteorites 1900 - 2000

Visualisation of all fell and found meteorites between 1900 & 2000. The graphic gives a special view on meteorite findings by comparing time and longitude on a radial axis. This kind of visualisation shows the human bias on the physical locations of found meteorites. For example there are two big holes on the longitude of the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans. It shows how the USA are constantly searching for meteorites over the last 100 years. The strategic searches in Libya the North and South Pole over the last 20 years show up as clusters. And there is more to find.
The graphic is meant to be a static explorative 100cm by 100cm print that makes the viewer curious about meteorite searches.
