Refugees of the World

Data Visualisation Project

Designed with Illustrator, Flash and Action Script


Introduction to
Flight Plans

This interactive data visualization project is based on my research on human rights issues. It illustrates where most refugees of the world originated from, and where they sought asylum between 1990 and 2009. Underneath the heat map is a timeline of wars and conflicts that had been major causes to this phenomena.

This project visualizes real data published by UN. World Bank and UNHCR.
