A data visualization about the world’s non-renewable resources – how long might they last? My entry for the Information is Beautiful Awards – First Challange , a visualization about the world’s non-renewable resources – how long might they last? Switch the buttons “Grows” and “doesn’t grow” to view the estimates of years ramaining for these minerals and fuels, if the production continues to grow at the rate it grew in the past 10 years; and what difference would make if we were not going to increase the production. Best viewed on full screen and on a larger monitor.
Paper.js — The Swiss Army Knife of Vector Graphics Scripting. Paper.js is an open source vector graphics scripting framework that runs on top of the HTML5 Canvas. It offers a clean Scene Graph / Document Object Model and a lot of powerful functionality to create and work with vector graphics and bezier curves, all neatly wrapped up in a well designed, consistent and clean programming interface. Paper.js is based on and largely compatible with Scriptographer , a scripting environment for Adobe Illustrator with an active community of scripters and more than 10 years of development.
