Trillions of trees
In this issue Nature published the first comprehensive map of the world’s trees.
The team wanted to do something more dynamic with the data from the research paper and gave the brief to data viz pro Jan Willem Tulp
who came up with a 3D visualization of tree density and a video. Stills from the 3D animation were used for the print graphic.
Find out more about the design process on the Nature Graphics blog.
