NETHERLANDS FROM ABOVE - Data visualization - herding sheep in a city

Data – based CGI animation created by 422 South for series 2 of Netherlands from Above (Nederland van Boven) for Dutch TV channel VPRO.

The Animation has no English narration, but you can see how the farmer moves his sheep (blue lines) with the help of a sheep dog (red line) through an urban environment from its grazing patch in the loop of a busy road, to a field some distance away.

Towards the end of the journey, the sheepdog, presumably tired and hot, gets distracted and takes a dip in a pond – leaving the farmer to complete the job by himself !
