The BBC has a gorgeous documentary series that started yesterday — Britain from Above. They take a look at Britain from the skies using satellite technology and GPS data. Watch patterns emerge as taxis, ships, and planes travel back and forth and information and data pass through Britain’s national telephone network. The imagery is beautiful. I love visualization that brings data to life.
The high-resolution videos don’t seem to be working right now, but here’s just a small sample:

So much so fast, just amazing. Your team should be complemented for a job well done.
you mean the BBC team. i’m just the messenger.
I just saw this on BBC’s odd news site and thought I’d mention to you here but I see you already have it showcased! It’s great to know that you’re on top of it all. Keep up the good work!
The animations for the series were created by 422 South in Bristol UK. I’m the creative director. Visit http://www.422south.com for more clips.
