Visualizing Empires decline – revisited

This work refines the latest Visualizing Empires Decline — the decline of the largest maritime empires of the 19 and 20th centuries with a sober approach.The physics engine was refined in order to model fluid interactions and mitosis like splits. I also added several countries and territories..

There is more information displayed, as the former colonies persist on the map and head to their current geographical positions. Therefore it is possible to visualize in the end of the narrative how much of the world was once part of an Empire. The timeline is no longer linear as it speeds up if there is nothing going on.
