24 hours of ship traffic in January 2018 in Denmark. No other symbols besides the vessel name is shown on the map. Size of the name is defined by a combination by the real size and the speed of the vessel. Orientation of the labels are defined by ships course over ground at each point in time.
I wanted to try out modern data with old graphical representation and that's the reason for the high contrast fonts and colors. Also this kind of typographical data visualization seems like an area where there is much more experiments to do in general. You can find the full video on Vimeo here.
