Smoke and Fire by Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation

Smoke and Fire is an interactive visualisation of air pollution in Australia, particularly shipping plume along the east coast of New South Wales.

The aim was to present the data to experts as well as the general public, communicating issues around air pollution and air quality monitoring. To do this, a WebGL-based visualisation was developed along with a set of tools to convert the pre-processed satellite data into a web-friendly format.
