How To Import Data and Make Maps with Google Fusion Tables This GIS tutorial by Naveen Sidda looks at Google Fusions Tables, how to import geographic data from a web page, and how to create map out geographic data within Google Maps. What is Google Fusion Tables? Google Fusion Tables is a data web service which is built on the concept of cloud computing for data integration from various data sources, visualization and collaborative management. Essentially, it stores and computes on the fly without any installation and maintenance of applications on the users machines as the providers manage the infrastructure required to accomplish the task.

Why Space Matters in the Arab Uprisings (and Beyond) Many non-scholarly and scholarly accounts on the societies, culture, and political economy of the Middle East post-“Arab Uprisings/Spring” still deal with cities and regions as mere repositories of social, cultural, political, and economic action—despite the spatial turn that has informed social sciences and humanities for more than three decades ago now. Indeed, they often overlook the shaping roles of the built and natural environments in the production of events unraveling in cities and regions of the Middle East. We thus read about cities and regions as backgrounds and contexts for processes and practices, rather than environments that have determining impacts on these. Since its launch in September 2013, Jadaliyya’s Cities Page has been committed to produce such informed, empirical, and integrated knowledge, where the spatial engages and intersects with historical, political, economic, technological, legal, social, and cultural analysis.

Inequality Tutorial Using Instant Atlas Guest contribution by Robert Lang. Inequality is a topic that is increasingly being taught at key stage 3 and in other key stages particularly in GCSE and post 16 courses where comparing places in relation to standard and quality of life and inequality is important. The study of inequality based on geographical factors can involve understanding terrain, climate, culture, industry, agriculture, level of development in the region/country, remoteness, urbanization, industrialization, governmental policy measures, population, and mechanization. Resulting inequality presents itself in the form of poverty, access to and quality of health care services, educational services, infrastructure, HDI [human development index] factors, government corruption or inefficiencies, among others.

Computational Color If you expect to come out of this class knowing simple rules like “red is for love” or “green is for happiness”, you’ll be extremely disappointed today. Color is way too subjective and dynamic to allow for so simple definitions. Actually, I’d rather stay away from telling you which colors to use when. Instead we will do 2 things: Learn to, simply, observe color and its characteristics. jRecorder – jQuery plugin for audio recording Recently I made a jQuery plugin named jRecorder to record voice in html pages. This plugin is very easy to integrate with your web page and you DON’T need a flash server or RED5 server to do the recording What all you need is a Web Server (PHP or any server scripting language). You can find the documentation and Download the plugin HERE.

Three.js: render real world terrain from heightmap using open data Three.js is a great library for creating 3D objects and animations. In a couple of previous articles I explored this library a bit and in one of those examples I showed you how you can take GIS information (in geoJSON) format and use D3.js and three.js to convert it to a 3D mesh you can render in the browser using javascript. This is great for infographic, but it doesn't really show a real map, a real terrain. Learning Three Dimensional Mandala The main goal behind this project was to do research on mandala pattern systems and create a three dimensional form. I explored various types of mandalas including cosmic mandalas, buddhist mandalas and spirographs. Starting from a two-dimensional approach, I began to expand the concept in three-dimensional space.
