Mapping 5,000 Years of City Growth

It’s the first to provide comprehensive data for world city sizes as far back as 3700BC. The authors (Meredith Reba, Femke Reitsma & Karen Seto) write: How were cities distributed globally in the past? How many people lived in these cities? A global map of wind, weather, and ocean conditions. John Snow’s famous cholera analysis data in modern GIS formats « Robin's Blog. In 1854 there was a massive cholera outbreak in Soho, London – in three days over 120 people died from the disease.

John Snow’s famous cholera analysis data in modern GIS formats « Robin's Blog

Famously, John Snow plotted the locations of the deaths on a map and found they clustered around a pump in Broad Street – he suggested that the pump be taken out of service – thus helping to end the epidemic. This then helped him formulate his theory of the spread of cholera by dirty water. This analysis is famous as it is often considered to be: A GIS Story. Introducing the Mapbox Studio Manual. Whether you’ve built with Mapbox Studio before or you’re not sure where to start, the new Mapbox Studio Manual is your guide to creating beautiful custom map styles.

Introducing the Mapbox Studio Manual

From a simple walk through of the Mapbox Studio interface to detailed conceptual explanations, we documented everything. Learn how our maps work Throughout the manual, you’ll learn more about the concepts and vocabulary that you need to understand how to use Mapbox Studio as a suite of tools. Start with the Introduction for an overview of how Mapbox works and how styles, tilesets, and datasets relate to each other. THE SPATIAL ECONOMY: INTRODUCTION. 1.1 The rediscovery of geography In the last few years there has been a dramatic increase in research on economic geography -- that is, on where economic activity occurs and why.


This surge of interest has been driven to some extent by real-world concerns -- the field has been given a big boost in particular by plans to unify the European market, and the attempt to understand how this deeper integration will work by comparing international economics within Europe with interregional economics within the United States. The Library of Congress Is Putting Its Map Collection on the Map. Map lovers rejoice: soon, thousands of maps from the Library of Congress’ collection will be free to gaze at online.

The Library of Congress Is Putting Its Map Collection on the Map

Thanks to a new partnership with the Digital Public Library of America, about 5,000 rare and historic maps will soon be easily accessible in a news digital catalogue, Allison Meier reports for Hyperallergic. Recently, the Library of Congress (LOC) signed a memorandum of understanding stating that the world’s largest library will start sharing parts of its digital collection with the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). As part of an effort to make these documents easily available from a central location, the LOC will begin by uploading 5,000 maps from three collections covering the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and panoramic maps, Meier reports.

“We are pleased to make the Digital Public Library of America a new door through which the public can access the digital riches of the Library of Congress,” Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden says in a statement.

Cómo crear un mapa con Google Fusion Tables - MappingGIS

Google Fusion Tables es un servicio web de datos que se basa en el concepto de la nube para la integración de datos de diversas fuentes de datos y su publicación en la web. En esencia, almacena y calcula al vuelo, sin ningún tipo de instalación ni mantenimiento, aplicaciones en el equipo del usuario. Veamos primero algunos ejemplos de su aplicación: Google Fusion Tables gestiona grandes colecciones de datos para que podamos hacer mapas o gráficos y añadir interacciones a ellos. Para ello los datos deben estar normalizados y guardados en un archivo Excel, .ods, .csv o .kml. Open GIS: No Bounds. How do I do that in QGIS.

Abstract Objectives This work was designed to adapt Geographical Information System-based spatial analysis to the study of historical epidemics. We mapped "plague" deaths during three epidemics of the early 15th century, analyzed spatial distributions by applying the Kulldorff's method, and determined their relationships with the distribution of socio-professional categories in the city of Dijon.

How To Make a Map From Open Data Using a Spreadsheet ~ GIS Lounge. There’s been an explosion of open data made available by all levels government, but much of it is still in a pretty raw form and can be hard to manipulate and visualize. However, Google Sheets provides some powerful data import functions that can automatically populate a spreadsheet from a data feed, and Geosheets adds mapping and geospatial functions to Google Sheets. So the two combined can allow you to make a map from open data very quickly and without downloading anything. Geosheets - Location Data Made Easy. Geosheets - Google Sheets add-on. La historia de la cartografía a través de 15 mapas. Decía el cartógrafo Gerardus Mercator que “los mapas son los ojos de la historia”. A decir verdad, los mapas reflejan los territorios y son en sí mismo la prueba gráfica del interés del hombre por dominar el mundo. La historia de la cartografía es el reflejo del afán del hombre por entender y comunicar la forma de la tierra que le rodea, del territorio en que vive y los lazos que con él establece.

Abarca desde los primeros trazos en la arena hasta el uso de técnicas geodésicas, fotogramétricas, la teledetección, o de servicios de mapas en Internet. Desde los orígenes, el hombre ha tenido la necesidad de explicar el mundo. De dar respuestas. Open HGIS Lessons and Resources. Welcome to SANET. Historical GIS Research Network. QGIS Cloud.
