China's Yellow River Delta

My Yellow River Delta map shows the ever changing appearance of the mouth of the Huang He (Yellow River) in China. Millions of tons of sediment enters the river every year. Much of this sediment is carried as far as the river's mouth where it continually rebuilds the delta.

On the Yellow River Delta map a video overlay loops through a series of satellite images. These natural-color images, from NASA's Landsat satellites, show the delta at five-year intervals from 1989 to 2009. To create my map I turned the images into an mp4 video. I then simply added my video URL into Mapox GL's example Add a Video demo.
