Deforestation


Data visualization

Prompt:

Design two infographics communicating the impacts of climate change to the general public in an engaging way and informative way. The topic I chose was Brazil's Decline of Deforestation Rate. 

 

I began by researching background information on Brazil's stability as an entire country, diving deep into political, economic, and ecological standpoints. These three subjects allowed me to expand data visualization based on certain factors contributing to these issues. 

I spent the first couple of weeks researching and visualizing specific data to see what information I wanted to organize in the separate posters. 

 

Process

I spent the first couple of weeks researching and visualizing specific data, seeing  what information I wanted to organize in the separate posters.  I started off by creating large visual representations for the reasons of Brazil's deforestation. The top shows Brazil's cattle ranching, the single largest contributor to deforestation, and the one below shows important political instances, impacting the decline of forest loss.

Several critiques later, I began to understand what areas of information that would most efficiently depict a full story of Brazil's deforestation. A certain piece of the poster I decided to further construct was the timeline. The aspect that by analyzing Brazil's history, people could really grasp the steps necessary in order to successfully achieve a decline in rate.

 

After finding a form that fit well for the timeline, I began to play with the aspect of 3-Dimensions, trying to find the most effective use of space. I wanted to pack the timeline with useful information while creating a beautiful data visual.
