mappiness, the happiness mapping app

mappiness, the happiness mapping app

We don't want to wake you in the night! If you're outside the UK please click here for important time zone info. Though everyone's welcome to take part, mappiness was originally intended for the UK only. Because of this, the "Don't beep before" and "Don't beep after" times in the app settings are always UK times, wherever in the world you are.

Japanese artist maps 1945-1998's nuclear explosions 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.

Invisible Cities, a project by Christian Marc Schmidt & Liangjie Xia

Top Invisible Cities A project by Christian Marc Schmidt and Liangjie Xia Invisible Cities visualizes the social networks in the urban environment.
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.
