site launch: GE Memorial Day Emissions

I've been a long-time admirer of the work of David McCandless (, and I finally had the chance to build one of his infographics in Flash. The project displays projected CO2 emissions from car journeys on Memorial Day across America. You can choose between 3 region groupings and 3 fuel types. The numbers involved are mind-boggling!

  1. Looks great Daniel!

    I like that you’ve combined number crunching with some nice subtle Flash effects such as the balloons waving around a bit.
