NYT explains the danger of digging deeper

James Glanz from the new NY Times has published an article about the earthquake risk posed by a geothermal dig. While the article is well written and comprehensive the animated explanations using information graphics and data mapping does an excellent job in communicating the technical essence of the article in a fraction of the time it takes to read the article itself. “Interactive” is somewhat misleading as the application simply is a movie with a visual timeline and meta data to the discussed subject.


The application is a great complement to the actual article and provides an intuitive way to earn a technological overview over the discussed topic using heatmaps, map plotts and 3d animations.
