Water scroller

Oct 16, 2015

Here’s a nice scroller from Katie Park for the Washington Post. It shows dwindling water levels in major reservoirs in California. At its core, there’s only a handful of data points to look at, but instead of a line to represent the top of a bar chart, Park used an animated water line that makes the numbers feel less abstract. I like it.
