Ice Core Data Visualization

Introduction: What better way to start off the GalaxyGoo Blogathon than to show this piece. A data-visualization of scientific data using Flash, it encompasses a lot of what GalaxyGoo is about in my view. Please enjoy our entries! - Edwin

Author's comments: Here's an early version of an interactive data visualization I did for NASA. It uses a small subset of the data set used in the published version. It was decided that we wouldn't include the extreme close up of this version, which lets you mouse over each data point to get it's value. Another feature that didn't make it into the final version, was the coloring of the data points, instead of drawing a zero line. Values greater than 0 are green, and values less than zero are purple.

The final version can be see on NASA's Earth Observatory.
