Information design is not just two-dimensional. The data sculpture represents the temperature and humidity of each extreme climate in January, such as moderate and continental. I would like to continue the second project. Information design is relative. I am going to compare all these climate conditions with Philadelphia. Overall, each climate condition is an independent object.
