This documentary, in the form of a satellite map, plots the examples of evolutionary biology provided by Charles Darwin in his book The Origin of Species. It’s a companion piece to my Interactive map of Charles Darwin’s Voyage of the Beagle.

With this map you can zoom in on examples of how these locations and species have evolved since Darwin first published his theories back in 1859. Some locations have radically evolved, while others remained unchanged from what he described them. Other locations have evolved due to the impact of Darwin’s influence on future society; nature and man have radically changed the landscape. The intent is to give you a better understanding of Darwin’s observations by digitally taking you to the locations of his observations and pairing the observation to it. For example, take Tierra del Fuego and the Strait of Magellan. Both are as unspoiled as when Darwin first described them. However, much has changed due to human intervention and civilization. Now there are large ports, cities and roads and the harshness of survival has been altered as technology made living under such hash conditions easier.
