This is some experimental visualization for the Stranger Things data set that orients the globe in the center of the Pacific Ocean. This is the beginning of more adventurous cartography, hoping for multi-region-picking and polygon globe masking…


This is a composite image, composed of two separate longitude regions, or slices:

  • Americas defined as longitude -175 to -30

There is the draft of the final map, there is a couple of other data layers on top of this, including hour, day, week duration plots.
