The Black Elevation Map is an immersive digital experience that re-imagines the American landscape by visualizing the heights of The Culture as elevation. The platform takes cultural data, such as Black population data, historical markers, Black-owned businesses, and social media activity, and visualizes it as points of interest on a dynamic, searchable elevation map of the United States. The greater the density of data, the higher the elevation.
