Lacu is a project by MinnPost for Northern Spark 2014 which visualizes 13,817 lakes in Minnesota, two at a time. Lacu ran from sun up to sun down, the span of the event. The plan was to project it on the front of the Northrup Auditorium, but due to weather, we projected it inside the building. It starts at the smallest lakes and ends with Lake Superior. For details on what data is being represented, see this image.

This project was not browser tested and will only run on modern web browsers and newer computers. It is meant for a fixed width of 1440px. It requires loading of over 30MB of data and will take some time to load; please be patient. For demo purposes, it will start at a random point in the presentation. Source code on Github.
