Indeed an Infamous Day 75 years ago… December 7, 1941 – hundreds of Japanese fighter planes attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbor near Honolulu, killing 2,403 people and injuring 1,178 others. An impressive data visualization using the fine story map technology from Esri. From Esri, “The map author embraces black-and-white basemaps for an old-school map aesthetic. This choice provides continuity when the story transitions from maps of the ships’ arrangement to newsreels and historic aftermath photos.” Indeed a day forever etched into the minds of all of us.
This story map uses images, videos, and maps to recreate that tragic day. We love how the map uses geographical and temporal details, across multiple battlefronts, to show a new perspective on the interconnected sequence of events.
The story map walks the reader through time and all the news and events leading up to the famous attack on the Port City and heart of the US Pacific Fleet. Historical figures are identified, important events are pin-pointed on the map, and historical images captured on that tragic day are shared along with a detailed timeline of the events. An impressive story told with the map.
