Data-driven documentary on community displacement

This team produced a documentary-style data story. The local Ladprao community is facing issues with displacement due to the cleansing and reconstruction of a nearby canal. The houses along its bank will be destroyed to accommodate a new canal, which will force some members of the community to move. This project presents a physical map of audio documentation for this ongoing story.
