The Puls of the Planet

An animation to visualize the puls of the world was created by using phone call data. Centered on New York, the puls is generated visualizing the amount of phone calls going to or from which part of the world to or from NY.
The different time zones influence this rhythm, also does the day and night cycle.

The size of the area shrinks or grows according to the phone call data and international cities with the highest amount of calls are highlighted.
