Visualizing empires decline from Pedro M Cruz on Vimeo.

This video timeline was sent in by Bryan Campen and covers the last 200 years of major world powers.  Fun visualization over time…

    so sad. like the sex pistols said “just another country.”

    I think it’s specifically visualising naval power, so it doesn’t exactly match dates of independence. Also, it’s a limited view of empires (where the Russian, German, USA, etc.)?

    It is pretty, though.
