Solar Eclipse - a Data Visualization

Algorithmic Thinking / Java Script / Creative Coding

Since the year -1999 to 3000 there were and are 11 898 solar eclipses. Solar eclipses can be calculated so well that one can predict the most exact longitudes and latitudes of the eclipses on earth.

An interactive data visualization has been created by a raw data set with pure numbers. It shows the different types of solar eclipses, at which location on earth the eclipses can be seen and with which speed and duration the eclipses are moving. The respective data are related to the latitude of the world and form interesting visualizations. The data is visualized with the library p5.js.
