To mark World Water Day, digital animations conveying the gravity of global declines in groundwater just went on display on two billboards in Times Square. The animations, based on satellite data provided by NASA and the University of California, Irvine, and statistics from the United States Geological Survey, will be shown several times each hour through April 22. The effort was organized by HeadsUp, an international competition challenging designers to create a visualization related to world water issues. (The winner was Richard Vijgen, an information designer in the Netherlands.)
