It Came Out of the Sky

The purpose of this project is to create a geographical visualization of UFO sighting data from 2001 to 2010 and try to find correlations between other geographical sources of data. The other sources that we used were weather stations, airports and military bases.
Some of the goals that we achieved are as follows.
  • We can pan and zoom the map
  • Different icons were used to denote different data points
  • The application updates quickly to allow the user to interact
  • We allow to chose specific types of sightings.
  • We allow the user to filter by time.
Code is at or you can use the attached file.
