This was an exciting year for Unfolding Maps! We released it for Processing 2, and upgraded to the new library mechanism so it can be installed from within the IDE, now. In the last year, Unfolding has been downloaded over 5000 times, and a wide span of visualization projects have been created. Find below a selection of one project for each month in 2014. Made with Unfolding.
