We let 10k+ people draw the former inner-german border. This is what happened.

On October 3rd Germany celebrated the 25th anniversary of the reunification. Therefore we published the interactive feature Einheitsreise. As a story intro we asked our readers to draw the former East-West German border. About 13,000 users tried it – with weird and also very precise results. The lines are sorted by score.

The video was created with leaflet-headless and leaflet-image.
