Humanflows / visualizing global migrations

Humanflows is a project whose main focus is on visually and interactively mapping global migrations in a bid to understand its causes. In its current state, it serves as a framework with which to develop further visualizations. Initiated by Miguel Cabanzo as part of the visualizar workshop in Madrid, the project was graced by contributions from Monica Sanchez (Spain), Nathan Yau (United States), and Iman Moradi (UK).

Aim of the project is to develop a tool to visualize and interconnect historical, economical and statistical data. In a near future, humanflows will try to show the causes and consequences of migration flows and -maybe more important-, unveil the relations between them.
