Japanese artist maps 1945-1998's nuclear explosions A Japanese artist named Isao Hashimoto has created a series of works about nuclear weapons. 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.

CISCO+A'dam Urban EcoMap AMSTERDAM, Dec. 1, 2009 - Cisco and the city of Amsterdam today announced the rollout of Urban EcoMap, an Internet-based tool that enables cities around the world to provide smarter climate change information for their citizens. 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.

Invisible Cities, a project by Christian Marc Schmidt & Liangjie Xia A project by Christian Marc Schmidt & Liangjie Xia By revealing the social networks present within the urban environment, Invisible Cities describes a new kind of city—a city of the mind. It displays geocoded activity from online services such as Twitter and Flickr, both in real-time and in aggregate. Real-time activity is represented as individual nodes that appear whenever a message or image is posted. Aggregate activity is reflected in the underlying terrain: over time, the landscape warps as data is accrued, creating hills and valleys representing areas with high and low densities of data.
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. 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.
December 2013: a new edition of my World Map of Social Networks, showing the most popular social networking sites by country, according to Alexa traffic data (caveat: it’s hard to understand the impact of Google+ because it is part of Google domain traffic). A few differences since last June but a lot since June 2009. Zuck’s baby is the dominant social network in in 127 out of 137 countries analyzed: in the latest months Facebook lost Kyrgyzstan, but stole Syria from Maktoob. Facebook has now 1,189 billion monthly active users, but it is growing less rapidly than before (it has added just 34 million active users in 6 months). 351 million users in Asia, 276 million in Europe, 199 million in US & Canada, 362 million in remaining countries (according to Q3 2013 Earnings) In Russian territories V Kontakte and Odnoklassniki are still struggling to conquer the market.
