This video depicts North American birth to death network dynamics 1620 to 2012 CE according to "deceased persons" in Freebase.com. The video was first published as Movie S2 in the article "A Network Framework of Cultural History" by Schich et al. in Science Magazine on August 1, 2014. See http://www.sciencemag.org/lookup/doi/...
Another, more dramatic version of the visualization, with global coverage and voice-over narration has been published concurrently in the Nature video channel. See http://youtu.be/4gIhRkCcD4U
In the current video, the dynamically applied color scheme indicates birth sources (blue) and death attractors (red). Individuals in the videos appear as particles gravitating towards their death locations, indicating collective directions of flow. The video is rendered with one frame per year at 30 frames per second. Further characterization of the movie content is given in the Supporting Online Material of the Schich at al. paper.
