Adventures in Data Analysis-UFO Sightings and Visualizations in CartoDB

I discovered CartoDB about two weeks ago, read their blog (check out Fredo Baart’s water current simulation to see if the Alcatraz escapees could have survived) and fell in love. Excited to get started I grabbed the UFO sighting dataset from the National UFO Reporting Center and went to work. It is very easy to get started with the software. Manipulating data within CartoDB wasn’t difficult and I was able to develop a basic torque visualization within 15 minutes.

My very first CartoDB visualization can be found below: If you are using WordPress embedding the map is as simple as pasting the CartoDB url into the page. After 20 minutes I am in love with the software. Best Gadgets to Keep Track of Your Fitness. The UP 24 by Jawbone is light weight, comfortable to wear and stylish.

You can wear it when you shower or have a bath 24/7. With Jawbone UP24 you can track steps taken, distance covered, calories burned, active time/idle time and sleep cycle. UP24 features Smart Alarm and Power Nap to wake you up at the right time of your sleep cycle when you will get up refreshed. This fitness tracker is supported by the free UP app through which you can analyse the recorded data. The only disadvantage with this fitness tracker is that it does not have a display screen to check your progress without using your smartphone. The UP24 is in contact with your smartphone via Bluetooth. If you do not mind the absence of a display screen on the band then this is a great fitness tracker to have.
