The Weather Report

The idea for this project was to show a lot of data on a screen and be able to use motion in a way that emphasized certain parts of that information. Using the weather data from four different cities of our choosing, we had to make it clear whether location, weather, or time had hierarchy over all of the other data during each segment, without making any data actually disappear. I based the order of my information on the flow that I thought made the most sense in terms of transitioning from one hierarchy to the next, so I showed where all of the cities were, introduced each of them by time, and finally ordered the days by weather. My decisions were based upon how I could make the text the most legible throughout the whole animation. While there are several bugs still in the actual motion pieces, I think that my flow of information and the weather symbols that I created made it an easy-to-follow weather report.
