Meteorites are meteoroids originating in outer space which survive impact with the Earth. From a total of more than 45700 recorded meteorite landings, only around 3800 have a mass larger than 1kg.

“Macrometeorites” is an interactive visualization of these meteorites. Through the interface it's possible to explore the meteorites according to the position were they fell, the year they were found and the kind of meteorite.

It’s based on a data set provided by “The Meteorolitical Society”.
