BBC Dimensions maps your perspective

Is your city area larger than the Oil spill? Or are the WWII enemy lines a short walk around the block? These are some of the answers that Berg London and the BBC try to find on their new project BBC Dimensions, at

BBC Dimensions “takes important places, events and things, and overlays them onto a map of where you are”. The prototype frames our view of the world and events according to our neighborhood perspective, an effective tool to inform audiences that are usually dettached from the scale of events taking place elsewhere.

From the Apollo 11 moon landing on your block to the ancient Colossus of Rhodes, there’s plenty new perspectives to explore.
