We found benefit in communicating the effects of climate change using a range of different visualisation forms. In addition we found that visualisations which have a high degree of realism or incorporate interactivity are particularly effective in engaging a diverse audience.

2013-2014

Visualising the holistic coastal impacts due to climate change. Anticipated impacts include sea-level rise, storm surge, and coastal erosion in the area of Baddeck and the Bra D’or lake system in Nova Scotia, Canada. This project seeks produce a range of experimental communication materials with the involvement of a number of community partners. These materials include mapping, photogrammetry, photography, typographic printing, information graphics and purpose made art/design objects.The rationale for producing such a broad range materials is to engender a deeper discussion with a broader local audience on the complex implications of climate change.
