Mappiness, the happiness mapping app. Mappiness iPhone App Maps Happiness (Say That Three Times Fast) Officially launching today is Mappiness, a UK iPhone app that “maps Happiness” by pinging users with a survey in order to plot out their feelings during the day (happiness, in this case, is apparently user-defined).

Mappiness iPhone App Maps Happiness (Say That Three Times Fast)

Using LBS, the app links responses and response locations to environmental data in an attempt to, according to lead researcher George MacKerron, “better find answers on the impacts of natural beauty and environmental problems on individual and national well being.” MacKerron, based at the London School Economics, elaborated on the idea of tracking happiness, “In the 19th century economists imagined a ‘hedonometer,’ a perfect happiness gauge, and psychologists have more recently run small scale ‘experience sampling’ studies to see how mood varies with activity, time of day and so on.” Mappiness is the first project of its kind to add location to the mix.

Now, thanks to the iPhone, we might get a better grasp on humanity’s happiness habits. Japanese artist maps 1945-1998's nuclear explosions. A Japanese artist named Isao Hashimoto has created a series of works about nuclear weapons.

Japanese artist maps 1945-1998's nuclear explosions

One is titled "1945-1998" and shows a history of the world's nuclear explosions. Over the course of fourteen and a half minutes, every single one of the 2053 nuclear tests and explosions that took place between 1945 and 1998 are is plotted on a map. A metronomic beep every second represents months passing, and a different tone indicates explosions from different countries.

It starts out slowly, with the Manhattan Project's single test in the US and the two terrible bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki that ended World War II. After a couple of minutes or so, however, once the USSR and Britain entered the nuclear club, the tests really start to build up, reaching a peak of nearly 140 in 1962, and remaining well over 40 each year until the mid-80s.

He began the piece in 2003, with the aim of showing, in his own words, "the fear and folly of nuclear weapons". Here's the video: "1945-1998" by Isao Hashimoto (Japan, © 2003) Zoomable Map video. Urban EcoMap. CISCO+A'dam Urban EcoMap.

CISCO+A'dam Urban EcoMap

A city can use Urban EcoMap to create awareness among its residents of the impact of carbon emissions on their urban environment. It provides information on carbon emissions from transportation, energy and waste among neighborhoods, organized by district, and delivers tips on ways to reduce a resident's carbon footprint. Facts/Highlights: The application is an extension of the Urban EcoMap launched in May 2009 in the city of San Francisco. Additional Information: UrbanEcoMap by Cisco.

Census 2010 - Mapping the Hard to Count Population. Grassroots Mapping. Mapping Social Networks In A 3-D Environment. Invisible Cities is an application that visualizes real-time and aggregate data culled from Twitter and Flickr, and maps it in a three-dimensional environment.

Mapping Social Networks In A 3-D Environment

It provides an alternate perspective towards the geographical relationships and intensity of social network connectivity within an urban landscape. Real-time updates are shown as nodes which materialize when tweets or images are posted, and aggregate data are displayed through the layout of the terrain. High and low levels of data in the environment are seen as hills and valleys, respectively. Invisible Cities is still undergoing development, but will be available in the near future. Read more about the project here. Here’s a short video that shows the application in action: Invisible Cities from Christian Marc Schmidt on Vimeo. WorldMap of SocialNetworks. August 2015: a new edition of my World Map of Social Networks, showing the most popular social networking sites by country, according to Alexa traffic data and other similar tools for double-check (caveat: it’s hard to understand the impact of Google+ because it is part of Google domain traffic).

Just one difference since last December: Facebook has reconquered Latvia, beating Draugiem, the historical local social network.
