In Relation To...
This is an interesting site with a simple intuitive interface that helps put the world in perspective. It began as a simple app for people to move the BP Oil Spill or the flood in Pakistan to another location on Earth, to help people understand the scale of world disasters in 2010. In the example above, the Pakistan flood has been moved to Arizona.
But the site designer, Annette Calebrese, and builder, Andy Littner,discovered that this concept could be expanded to promote an understanding of the differences between countries.The site continues to grow as a fascinating design experiment in learning as you go. Design for shared understanding.
