Rain, Rain go away, come back another day…. I seem to find myself saying this all the time at the moment. Where did the UK Summer go? Working for Netex, a Spanish company with my HQ in La Coruna, a beautiful city in Northern Spain, I am sometimes envious of my colleagues finishing work on the weekend heading straight to the beach for some sunshine. I head straight to the weather map on the BBC to see what the future holds for the UK.
The BBC are increasingly using interactive graphics and learning models to demonstrate events, scenarios and facts. These engaging graphics are excellent examples of content that grab the student or viewers’ attention. They also require your engagement to obtain the results and learn from them.
Click maps and slide bars to move time help you locate weather in specific destinations and see into the future to plan your weekend!
What’s it like to face a 90mph cricket ball? Test you reactions with an interactive graphic from hawk eye and then watch the video to see how the ’experts do it’!
Did you stay up all night? In the UK election this year the nation was shocked with the results that unfolded throughout the night, again the BBC demonstrated these events with engaging content for people online. The information is available online with the use of maps and graphics to highlight party turnout, display statistics and results.
