Follow the journey of crop sprayer Robert Grace in this data visualization. We attached a GPS unit to Robert’s plane and tracked him for two weeks as he sprayed crops in Kansas. This video gives a unique view of the work that Robert does and reveals why crop spraying is still necessary even though farmers grow genetically modified crops with built in toxins to kill pests.
