Esri Animated Map: A Century of UFO Sightings

Esri, whose technology combines maps with data, offers an animated graphic of reported UFO sightings worldwide from 1904 through 2014. The graphic shows most sightings in the United States and reveals a significant increase after World War II and the Roswell incident, and after approximately 2000. It is hard to gather much more from the graphic, which was made using Esri’s ArcGIS Pro, Cinema 4D, X-Particles, Cycles4D and Adobe After Effects. But it is very pleasing to watch, and the music, by Yehezkel Raz, is also very pleasing. Data from NUFORC.
