Every day, people from all around the world visit superfad.com to learn about us. We thought it would be nice to learn about them for a change. With that in mind, we created a global traffic visualizer to teach us more about our web audience and the cities and countries in which they live.
The visuals are driven by data from Google Analytics, the Yahoo! Developer Network and GeoNames. Key technologies include HTML5, CSS3 and, most notably, WebGL, which allows for hardware-accelerated 3D graphics directly within a web browser.
