For this project, we were expected to utilize data from the CIID Alumni network in order to create an interactive visualization.

CIID has a very international student body, but perhaps more interesting for us, was that many of the students had lived in multiple cities both before coming to and after leaving CIID.

The data visualization focused on the distance traveled in kilometers both to and from CIID. It uses the cities alumni were living in before and after their time at CIID.

Copenhagen is the focal point of the data visualization, with “Before CIID” to the left and “After CIID” to the right. As the user mouses over the timeline, names of the alumni appear on the screen, while the name of the cities and their distance to Copenhagen appear in the middle, above and below the CIID center.
