World Border Barrier

Shangbo Chen

A quick but in-depth view of the current state of border barriers around the globe.


World Border Barrier is a data visualization about the impact and relationship between border-barriers around the world.

A response to Trump's plan to build a wall, I tried to understand the true meaning and consequences of this wall. It started as a visual comparison between Trump's wall and Berlin wall, then I realized a bigger underlying issue is the history of people using border barriers for multiple purposes. By analyzing and visualizing data about this walls, this project hope to capture differences and similarities between different border barriers and present itself in an approachable yet in-depth way.
