“The Budapest Train Station Where …”

In the fall of 2015, I reported from Hungary and Serbia on the refugee crisis. The central piece that came out of this period was a feature article for Gawker, which documented the crisis. This reporting later informed a data visualization project on the trip taken by one family out of Syria, which can be accessed below.

Migrant Data Visualization Project

Based on my reporting of the European crisis, I built this website on the main route taken by refugees in the fall of 2015. The information is gathered from first-person interviews with volunteers, journalists and migrants in Hungary, Serbia, the Netherlands and Germany. The site utilizes the Google Matrix and Mapbox APIs.
