The Weight of Rain

The Weight of Rain

“This image is from late November, during Thanksgiving week. And this is the same image, 24 hours later.

I’ll show that again. Notice how every living thing — every green thing — is pressed down a few inches?

That’s the weight of rain.”

Excellent talk by NY Times Graphics Editor Jonathan Corum on narrative and visualization.

    I really liked this talk. Other stuff on his website is great too, like calculating the flight capabilities of an unladen swallow (Monty Python reference…).
