Using maps and graphics, the infrastructure cost of the Paris, France Metro is provided on a per square meter basis. Not all stations are created equal – a fact displayed when viewing some of the costs of the Metro stations. Charts also provide information on per line basis for different routes, showing costs between stations [...]

Researchers in London at University College London (CASA) have published ‘Visualising Spatial and Social Media‘ – a working paper that discusses spatial representation in relationship to visualization. “First we examine how the 2-dimensional map has become key to many kinds of spatial representation, showing how this software has moved from the desktop to the web as well [...]

Big Data is often associated with the volume of data – more data equates to bigger. But, is volume the major characteristic that identifies a big data issue? Likely not. Why? Because a lot of data can be poor data, useless and meaningless and having no significant value. It is easy to generate lots of [...]

Topcon has been working with it’s new CropSpec sensor that is designed for in-crop field use. I came across this is in their annual report last night. “CropSpec is a real-time integrated crop monitoring and application system for agricultural equipment, developed in cooperation with Yara International. Designed for use with Topcon’s field proven System 200/250 [...]

Nicolas Garcia Belmonte has created a unique visualization that tracks U.S. wind patterns over 72 hours based upon the last 72 hours of National Weather Service Data. ”This map tracks wind direction (lines), speed (radius) and temperature (hue) measurements from 1200 weather stations across the country. You can play an animation of the wind movements and [...]

How we understand and what we expect from cities today is rapidly changing. Concepts such as carbon management, 3D city models, integrated spatial data use and advanced demographic charting and statistics for decision making and business intelligence are all relatively new. While some more advanced city managers can weave through geographic information systems (GIS), leap [...]
