Hurricane visualization for tv viewers
205 (Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center)
Why the FAN fails viewers. What are the HEADLINES for a hurricane? What are the important variables viewers can use? How to give a sense of scale. Get up close and personal with hurricanes with graphics. What does that DOT mean? What does that LINE mean to the viewer. TV versus newspaper print.
