John Snow’s cholera map of London recreated

What would John Snow’s famous cholera map look like on a modern map of London, using modern mapping tools? The map changed what we know about germs and disease - and created a new way of looking at the world. With the help of mapping tool CartoDB and using the Stamen style maps, this is how it looks with larger circles representing more deaths.

Mapping Type 2 Diabetes Hotspots in London

Researchers from Queen Mary, University of London used Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to create detailed maps with type 2 diabetes data.
The resulting maps highlighted geographical hotspots for type 2 diabetes, and these hotspots revealed fantastic similarities to poverty maps created during the late 19th Century by Charles Booth.

4 August - Mark Duggan, 29, is shot dead by police at Ferry Lane, Tottenham. (profile)
6 August - Duggan’s family formaly identify his body. Around 300 people gather outside Tottenham police station wanting “justice”. Bottles are being thrown and it begins.(it’s unclear who started. There are various reports online that give the blame to either the police or the protesters)Pictures: Tottenham before & afterArticle: Tottenham Riots - a peaceful protest, then suddenly all hell broke loose
7 August - Investigation starts after all the fires are under control. 26 police officers where injured, 55 arrests where made. Local MP David Lammy tells that community has “had the heart ripped out of it”. Later that day reports come of of windows being smashed and looting has started in various areas of London (Brixton, and more)Pictures: Further outbreaks of violence and looting in LondonArticle: Second night of violence in London - and this time it was organised
8 August - Various police officers are injured. Scotland Yard talks about “copycat criminal activity across London in small and mobile groups.” Police talks about gangs of youth. Current reports in twitter talk of more riots in London, also possible in Birmingham (x) & Leeds. 
Interesting reads (all from The Guardian):
Brixton: could it happen again? 30 years after the riots
Looting ‘fuelled by social exclusion’
There is a context to London’s riots that can’t be ignored

London Underground Map with Distance Grids

The London Underground Map is famous for ignoring the real geography  of the city in favour of a simplified diagram showing the lines and  their intersections.  The map is so prevalent that Londoners and  visitors now probably think of the city in terms of the tube map-  referring to an area by the name of a station, or thinking of distances  in the tube network as well as the real physical distance above ground.
