Infographic: Global shipping routes, mapped using GPS data

A new infographic uses GPS to map out the world's shipping routes over a year's time. Courtesy of German researchers at Carl von Ossietzky Universitat, the map is based on the data for a year's worth of itineraries from actual cargo ships -- 16,693 of them, actually -- gathered from LLoyd’s Register Fairplay and the Automatic Identification System, which tracks vessels partly by using GPS. It's from a paper entitled, "The complex network of global cargo ship movements” (.pdf) by Pablo Kaluza, Andrea Kölzsch, Michael T. Gastner and Bernd Blasius that will be published in an upcoming issue of the Journal of the Royal Society: Interface. European Journal of Geography. Developers.

Having originally entered grad school to study traditional print cartography and GIS, we quickly became engaged with the rapidly changing field of interactive mapping. Google Maps had launched the previous spring, while more and more internet users were growing accustomed to having interactive maps as a part of their online lives. Dafont.com.

Internet users (per 100 people) Subtleties of Color: The “Perfect” Palette. About a year ago, we published a blog post framed as a letter to NASA , asking them to stop using rainbow color scales. The post was written out of a general frustration with rainbow color scales, but especially out of seeing field experts and leaders, like NASA, using a perceptually incorrect color scale.

We weren’t alone. Robert Simmon from NASA’s Earth Observatory has been crusading for the same changes. Color Blindness Article. By Dr Alex Wade, Research Fellow at Stanford University (this article appeared in Planet Medica, April 2000) The next time you go strawberry picking, imagine how much harder it would be if the fruit were the same colour as the leaves.

Color Blindness Article

What Is Color Blindness? - Eye M.D.-approved information from EyeSmart. In the retina (the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye), there are two types of cells that detect light: rods and cones.

What Is Color Blindness? - Eye M.D.-approved information from EyeSmart

Rods detect only light and dark and are very sensitive to low light levels. Cone cells detect color and are concentrated near the center of your vision. There are three types of cones that see color: red, green and blue. The brain uses input from these three color cone cells to determine our color perception. Color blindness can occur when one or more of the color cone cells are absent, nonfunctioning, or detect a different color than normal.

Market Segmentation System

Neighborhood Profiles Tapestry classifies US neighborhoods into 65 market segments based on socioeconomic and demographic factors, then consolidates them into LifeMode and Urbanization Groups. Click a LifeMode group, then a segment to see the profile. Request a free poster that shows all 65 segments. The Esri Data Advantage The Tapestry database is available in a variety of geographies.
