Bilan de l’atelier cartographie libre sur Open street map. GeoVISTA Studio Project. Cartographie, cartes vectorielles, fonds de cartes - InterCarto. Processing geo information in Wikipedia articles - Creative Coding - Tutorial. Introduction This tutorial is on how to lookup and geocode places in a Wikipedia article and visualize those with the help of Processing.

Processing geo information in Wikipedia articles - Creative Coding - Tutorial

It gives a basic overview on the related topics, and provides mutiple Processing examples, below. This brief article, as well as the examples were created for the GeoWiki workshop at the Interface Design department of FH Potsdam. Placemaker Yahoo Placemaker is a "geoparsing web service" that enrichs content with geographic metadata by extracting places from unstructured texts. Calculate distance and bearing between two Latitude/Longitude points using Haversine formula in JavaScript. Graphics Atlas: Welcome. ISO 3166-1 country names and corresponding ISO 3166-1-alpha-2 codes. GeoIQ Developer. Download Style from GitHub Acetate is a new way of thinking about basemap tiles.

GeoIQ Developer

Made in conjunction with Stamen Design and 41 Latitude, it allows you to layer pieces of the basemap throughout your visualization. We think what we came up with is quite beautiful, but if it’s not to your tastes all the stylesheets and code is opensource so you can roll your own. For developers, GeoIQ has released the stylesheets and code to create the Acetate tiles. Read more about it on our announcement blog post. Getting Started Acetate is built upon the Tilestache, Mapnik projects and it uses a combination of PostGIS and Shapefiles to store spatial data. Data Needed In order to get started with the data install PostGIS and download the OpenStreetMap Planet File. The custom data is for place names and simplified motorways. Software Needed To get yourself going install Tilestache from Github.

At the moment we give you all the pieces to roll your own, though look for a full tutorial in the coming weeks. TargetMap - Create & share customized data maps on Googlemaps. Free Online Mapping tool. GeoPlanet Explorer. Petewarden/iPhoneTracker @ GitHub. This open-source application maps the information that your iPhone is recording about your movements.

It doesn't record anything itself, it only displays files that are already hidden on your computer. Download the application Read the FAQ Authors Alasdair Allan ( @aallan on Twitter Pete Warden ( @petewarden on Twitter This application relies on map tiles from the volunteer-run OpenStreetMap project, so please consider supporting their great work. Download Source You can download this project in either zip or tar formats. You can also clone the project with Git by running: $ git clone Is there a Windows version? Is there a Windows version? The file exists on PCs too, but we haven't written a version of the application that runs on Windows ourselves. How does the application work? How can I examine the data without running the application? OpenHeatMap. CartoMouv'

Polymaps. Volunteered Geographic Information » Drawing maps with Python. There’s an increasing amount of useful packages that allow for spatial analysis in python.

Volunteered Geographic Information » Drawing maps with Python

Having said that, actually drawing a map remains relatively tricky, here I am sharing a few of the methods that I have come up with recently to help in this area. Firstly, let’s consider the basic set of prerequisites that you should have installed to do some useful things in Python. Numpy and Scipy – easy_install Numpy / easy_install Scipy Numeric Python and Scientific Python vastly extend the scientific programming capabilities of Python.

Numpy adds the array() object which, for numeric matters, is far superior to the standard Python List, as well as numerous mathematical methods. Matplotlib – easy_install matplotlib Standard Python plotting library, with excellent graphic data visualisation capabilities built in and an excellent set of examples and tutorials. Descartes – easy_install descartes gdal and ogr – install gdal, then easy_install gdal PySAL – download only as ongoing project. Resources: New City Landscapes - Interactive Tweetography Maps. Over the past few months we have been harvesting geospatial data from Twitter with the aim of creating a series of new city maps based on Twitter data.

New City Landscapes - Interactive Tweetography Maps

Via a radius of 30km around New York, London, Paris, Munich we have collated the number of Tweets and created our New City Landscape Maps. New York New City LandscapeImage by urbanTick using the GMap Image Cutter / New York New City Landscape -Use the Google Maps style zoom function in the top right corner to zoom into the map and explore it in detail. Explore areas you know close up and find new locations you have never heard of. Click HERE for a full screen view. The highest New York point is the Time Square Peak. Sciences : Cartographie.
