Locus Afghanistan

Locus Afghanistan

Locus is a news archive visualisation that was created for DataArt. We used the Guardian Open Platform as they provide an API that can be queried by date, and an archive going back over 10 years. Guardian articles are mapped to places over time, creating a spatial & temporal trace of events and media attention in the last decade.

This piece of work was made in 2010 using Flex/Flash.
