December 7, 1941 is a date that lives in infamy.

The 1941 project is an interactive map that includes eye witness accounts.

Sailing seas of plastic is a new interactive map, created by New Zealand-based data visualization firm Drumpark, showing the trillion of pieces of plastic garbage that look like islands in  the world's oceans.

Each white dot on the map represents 20 kig of plastics. This adds up to 593 million pounds of plastic floating on our oceans' surfaces.

From afar, it looks like giant floating landfills but zoom in and it tells a different story.

The information used for this map was taken from a new study "Plastic pollution in the world's oceans" by oceanographer Marcus Eriksen.
