UFO sightings by state
Here is a fun little data vis tool that displays UFO sightings by state as a heat map. (My first Processing sketch…)
This program adjusts the color of each state according to values taken from National UFO Reporting Center Report Index by State. Bright green states have more reported UFO sightings and presumably more little green men.
If you toggle between the raw data and per capita modes, you’ll see the southern states do not report as many UFO’s per capita as the rest of the country. It is also interesting to note that while California appears to be an outlier when viewed in raw data mode, when viewed in per capita mode it is actually in the middle tier. Also note Hawaii…
