The History of Barcelona, in 26 Interactive Maps

This is a new interactive mapping project tracking the history of the capital of Spain’s Catalonia region from 150 A.D. to 2010, created by an urban-planning and data-viz collective called 300.000 Km/s (whose projects we’ve written about in the past). From the press release: The Historic Charter of Barcelona is a pioneering tool in the research and dissemination of urban history, making Barcelona the first city in the world to have a tool of this complexity.

The Historic Charter is a document aiming to study the history but also to explain it: a tool to think the future by understanding the past. This project presents 24 maps, each representing a different milestone in the city’s growth over time. This gif shows an abridged version of that transformation: La salvaje destrucción de Londres por los bombardeos nazis, explicada en mapas. Reino Unido fue uno de los pocos países europeos no invandidos por la Alemania de Hitler durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

La salvaje destrucción de Londres por los bombardeos nazis, explicada en mapas

No fue por su falta de ambición, sino por su incapacidad logística y militar de hacerlo. Sin embargo, eso no impidió que el país sufriera en sus carnes la brutalidad inédita del conflicto. Lo hizo a través de los incesantes bombardeos que, durante toda la guerra, pero especialmente entre 1940 y 1941, los bombarderos de la Luftwaffe destrozaron la ciudad y mataron a alrededor de 30.000 personas. Naturalmente, el alcance de la destrucción londinense fue muy menor al encontrado en otras ciudades europeas a la altura de 1945 (Varsovia, Budapest o Berlín, de la que hablamos aquí, habían sido derribadas en su práctica totalidad). Pero eso no significa que sus cicatrices no fueran grandes ni visibles. CityChrone.

ART OF MOVIES - Movie Maps

Well I’m glad Andrew DeGraff had the patience and skill to create his collection of Movie Maps. Andrew is an illustrator by trade and has loved maps from an early age, and as he told The Huffington Post, it sounds like merging his passion of stories and maps was a no brainer: “When I started as a professional illustrator, I got a few jobs creating maps for travel magazine illustrations, and had a lot of fun doing them. I realized I really loved doing architecture and landscape. At the time I was also showing in some pop-culture shows, and I noticed that a lot of the work was based on character portraits, characters in scenes, or the characters re-contextualized.

I’ve included some examples of his work below but for more of Andrew’s illustrations check out his website and tumblr page. Urban Age. Pixel Map Generator.

A Cartography of the Anthropocene

The Anthropocene. We’re already there. This is our time, our creation, our challenge. Officially, this epoch does not exist. Yet. Unofficially however, the term is used more frequently in the scientific literature and, more recently, in publications dedicated to the general public. So, might you ask, what is the Anthropocene? First, the etymology. The term was proposed in 2000 by Paul J. Technically, the Anthropocene is the most recent period of the Quaternary, succeding to the Holocene. ES:Beginners Guide.

Restriction of maximum width to 14400 Pixel (= horizontal extension 360° with zoom factor 2) 14.05.2011 - In recent days, the requests have increased massively to this application. As a consequence, sometimes there result long times of waiting for the panoramas to appear. Very broad panoramas bind disproportionate resources. Therefore I have restricted the maximum width of the full panoramas to allow the fairest possible sharing of the limited resources.

The restriction does not apply to the panoramas sent by e-mail. This restriction allows the creation of full 360-degree panoramas with zoom factor 2. The application runs on a home computer with a quad processor and 4 MB memory, connected to the outside world with DSL 6000, i.e. outbound with max. 750 bits/s, on which my son also is playing FIFA11 and so on. So I ask you for your understanding that nothing will change without your contribution. Mapa de los carteles de la droga en México. (2)
