The Local reports on the newly designed Berlin Metro Map. The UK professor Max Roberts who designed the map decided that the current map needed a change. “Although the Berlin underground map is based on a standard technique comprising of horizontal, vertical and 45 degree diagonal lines, it seems simple until, “you are on the [...]

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 [...]

3D has particular benefits where movement occurs. As time passes, features change, direction change and the perception of moving through space becomes more heightened. As Matt Warman at the Telegraph reports, “It’s the speed and the power that 3D captures so much better than 2D,” says Martin Turner, Sky Sports’ executive producer for F1. “If [...]
