Energy Life Cycle of Coal

The Great Lakes infographic highlights the lifecycle of coal, from extraction to use, and the dependency of the Great Lakes states on Wyoming coal.

The map of Wyoming and the Great Lakes connected by railways creates a narrative of process and shows dependency from one region to another. Color is used heavily to unite spatially diffused data objects; connecting, for example, red colored power plant locations on the map to red data relating to power production.
