The Great Uprising

The challenge

Dr. Peter Levy at York College, PA, reached out to auut studio to help him build a striking data visualization of his research covering 750+ urban revolts of the decade spanning 1963-1971.

Using everything we have learned in the past 5 years about making a compelling and easy-to-use map, we developed the aesthetic and the code to power his new website,


Our studio did the heavy-lifting for developing the map code, but still made sure that Dr. Levy had complete control over and familiarity with his WordPress site, with an eye towards making future additions on his own. We handled:

  • conversion of data into machine-readable format
  • design of the map interface
  • selection of an eye-catching layout for the scholarly essays
  • charts and graphics
  • web development
