Today we are joined by Cameron Beccario who created the immensely impressive Earth visualization — a beautiful, geeky, mesmerizing look at the small blue marble we call home. On the show Cameron tells us all about the story behind the project, its evolution, and its reception — plus, at the end, we have a bonus chat about the state of data visualization in Japan.

Enjoy the show!


Cameron describes what happens when you make a data viz image that’s just too cool.
