Explore over 2041 known nuclear tests conducted and their effect on our environment, our health, and our future.
Create a fun and engaging way to illustrate all known nuclear detonations and their effects on the global scale.
- Could we adopt code to webGL and create a web experience?
- Could I display activity on both sides of the globe simultaneously?
- How to display most active testing locations?
- Could we show effect of fallout?
- What do we name the product?
- How do we package the release in meaningful increments?

Gather data of all known Nuclear Explosions
Gather and structure data for 2000 nuclear tests. Including yield, type of test, and name. Most of the data was extracted from the CMR Nuclear Explosion Database, formatted and used to dynamically generate all the tests in Unity 3D.
Plot all detonations at the exact location of the test
Using longitude and latitude data, each test is plotted at the exact location. Giving the user a visual representation of the wast amount of detonations that took place at each site. Representing each test type with a color and the total yield with size, in hopes of giving the user an idea of the total effect these sites have had on their environment and respected location.
Show time-line to visualize most active years of testing
Showing a time line to visualize the most active years of testing along with types of tests conducted was useful in demonstrating how the testing changed as we learned about the huge negative impacts of atmospheric tests.
Browse through some of the most interesting photos that are a part of the public domain nuclear test footage and get a feel for the people and conditions involved in the creation of these mighty weapons.
App logo creation
A few concepts of the logo exploration. Being short on time, as this was a personal project and already many hours were invested, I had to go with something simple I could finalize in a matter of hours.
