Debunking the Bermuda Triangle with Casualty Data

Map and data animation expert Jack recently mapped all nautical casualties from 1982-2015 according to a US dataset for a video with YouTuber Johnny Harris debunking the Bermuda Triangle myth.

Improving Hackney's Cycling Gateways

Cycling advocate Will recently led a task force to survey cycling infrastructure conditions across Hackney, London. He managed this data collection project in Felt, collaborating with several other stakeholders, then processed that data into a final map of intersections and gateways that would make for safer cycling. This map will be included in part of the local planning process. To learn more about Will's process for creating this, check out our Felt Community Meetup recording.
