The UFO Sightings Map is a very informative, interactive map that outlines information about the many UFO sightings across the United States over the years. Drawing from data collected from data scientist Hakeem Frank, the map comes with a “Time Widget” that allows for chronological customization. Additionally, users can tap into a particular area to read more about a particular sighting.
This map shows reports of UFO sightings in the United States, with historic UFO sightings symbolized in yellow, and featured in the Historical Reports widget. The dataset contains over 80,000 records of UFO sightings over the past century (between 1910 and 2014), and the data displayed lapses from year to year.
