Who would the rest of the world vote for? A data-driven digital experience visualizing “soft” and “human” data to discover the world’s interest in the 2016 US presidential candidates.
Accurat imagined an original data visualization that transforms countries into gooey bubbles, bouncing around as the user switches from topic to topic and sticking to each other depending on additional information on search habits. Accurat’s goal was to represent this “soft nature” of data on people’s interest in the topics of the US election in a way that could convey the general trends and magnitude of the phenomenon, rather than the precise number represented by the index.
The project is based on React framework and WebGL. Code is opensource and available on GitHub.
