Urban Observatory

Global mapping company ESRI recently unveiled an Urban Observatory, which allows users to compare data points for major cities across the world side-by-side. Users can download a free application and compare data on traffic density, population, land-use issues, services, and more in cities such as London, Los Angeles, and Tokyo — see their maps of population density above. Currently 35 variables with data sets on 16 world cities are available, but the goal is to expand participation to other cities around the world. The comparative framework features maps to visualize issues cartographically. The goal is to empower professional planners and citizens alike to make informed decisions.

Entries and Exits: Map of a Day on the Washington Metro

The above graphic maps, per hour, entries and exits per station on a typical weekday on the Washington Metro, similar to this animation of the London Underground. Station data by hour was provided by WMATA for October 2012.

Share your GPS tracks with Track Profiler

If you enjoy working with GPS tracks from various events, Trackprofiler.com might be of great value to you.  I ran the Peachtree Road Race 10K last week, and putting my track into Trackprofiler was quite helpful.

Global Heat Map of Protests in 2013 

My colleague Kalev Leetaru recently launched GDELT (Global Data on Events, Location and Tone), which includes over 250 million events ranging from riots and protests to diplomatic exchanges and peace appeals. The data is based on dozens of news sources such as AFP, AP, BBC, UPI, Washington Post, New York Times and all national & international news from Google News.

Cluster Discovers Steady Leak in Earth’s Plasmasphere

A steady wind, discovered by ESA’s Cluster mission, is slowly escaping from Earth’s plasmasphere - the torus of plasma that surrounds our planet’s atmosphere. The outflow amounts to almost 90 tonnes a day. Predicted by theory two decades ago, this is one of the main mechanisms that replenishes Earth’s magnetosphere with fresh plasma.

The Battle of Gettysburg Interactive Map 

The Battle of Gettysburg took place 150 years ago, and is considered by many to be the turning point of the Civil War. By marrying the magic of cartography and technology, we can put ourselves in the places of General George Meade of the Union army and Confederate general Robert E. Lee as they planned their respective movements around the limitations of the era and the terrain. Anne Kelly Knowles explains the map features.
