Visualizing maritime empires decline

Visualizing empires decline from Pedro M Cruz on Vimeo.

Video: The data refers to the evolution of the top 4 maritime empires of the XIX and XX centuries by extent.

It is best viewed from the Vimeo site in full screen and HD.

From the animation author: "I chose the maritime empires because of their more abrupt and obtuse evolution as the visual emphasis is on their decline. The first idea to represent a territory independence was a mitosis like split. The split of a territory is often the result of an extent process and it had to be visualized on a specific year."

Visualizing empires decline. Information visualization et al. Pedro M Cruz's master thesis.
