Satellite Visualization (view animation)

An exercise in designing representations of events to support decision-making. How do you reveal expected gaps in satellite transmission caused by the curvature of the earth. How do you indicate an expected transponder switchover and draw attention to an unexpected loss of communication. What is the context that will give meaning to the data? What are the relevant frames of reference?
