FORESTS ARE WARMING
information design I web design
This information design project visualizes the impact global warming will potentially have on the color range of fall foliage in New England through interactive, web-based design. According to recent research, an increase in global temperatures will very likely dull the vibrance of fall foliage colors as well as cause tree species which display the most colorful foliage, to move further north. The project “Forests Are Warming” uses interactive web design to allow the user to change the color diversity of asbtracted pixels, which were derived from photos of actual foliage collected in Maine.
