Meteorite media impact

This visualization explores the media impact of meteorites on the web vs the actual mass. We gathered data from Google, Bing, Twitter, Flickr and Youtube to determine the popularity of each meteorite and show their virtual depiction.

Collecting the data was the biggest task mainly because we wanted to cover a wide spectrum of internet media. With various tools like CasperJS, NodeJS, PhantomJS we crawled Topsy´s Otter API, Twitter API, Flickr API, YouTube Api, Google Results and Bing Results and fused it in a MongoDB.

Selecting a meteorite shows you a detailed impact on the web with related Tweets, Flickr Photos or Youtube Videos. More on visualizing.org, the german documentation, together with Luis Grass.
