Note: this project has now been retired.

I produced two websites for the recent ARCCSS Showcase. One of those was The Heartbeat of Australian Extremes. Although Australia experiences heat extremes regularly, they are getting worse. This site shows the annual trend in hot nights (> 20 °C) each year next to an animated map of hot nights.

I’ve written about some of the design decisions behind this project, as well as some of the technical challenges.
