The Web 2.0 Summit Map - The Data Frame We live in a world clothed in data, and as we interact with it, we create more. Welcome to the 2011 edition of the Web 2.0 Map. This map showcases the incumbents and upstarts in our network economy, gathered around various territories that represent the Web 2.0's Points of Control. We've removed last year's acquisition mode to make room for a newly minted data layer. Pan and Zoom to explore the map, and click the icons to get some insight about each player and their position. Then, turn on the comments view or data layer to discuss the map with others and add your own ideas!

Listes des communes de France Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Listes par département[modifier | modifier le code] 01 à 10[modifier | modifier le code] Rectangular subdivisions of the world Eric Fischer, who continues his string of mapping fun and doesn't even do it for his day job, maps the world in binary subdivisions. Each bounding box contains an equal number of geotagged tweets. The best part is that Fischer is actually doing some problem-solving, trying to figure something out, so it's not just a pretty picture. The actual motivation behind it, by the way, was to figure out an approximately optimal set of bounding boxes to query for in APIs like Picasa's, where if you ask for the whole world, you only get a few, very recent, results, but if you query for small enough bounding boxes, you can see further back in time.

Iconic designer Paula Scher is one of my big creative heroes, her thoughts on combinatorial creativity a perfect articulation of my own beliefs about how we create. Since the early 1990s, Scher has been creating remarkable, obsessive, giant hand-painted typographic maps of the world as she sees it, covering everything from specific countries and continents to cultural phenomena. This month, Princeton Architectural Press is releasing Paula Scher: MAPS — a lavish, formidable large-format volume collecting 39 of her swirling, colorful cartographic points of view, a beeline addition to my favorite books on maps.

The Google Map of the 19th Century - Megan Garber - Technology It seems like the quintessentially contemporary phenomenon: the pedestrian, walking along, distracted from his surroundings by the glow of the map in his smartphone. But there have been some oblivious palm-gazers, it turns out, since long before Steve Jobs came along. In London, during the Great Exhibition of 1851, the merchant George Shove designed a ladylike accessory that would allow its wearer to navigate, discreetly and easily, the fair's Hyde Park environs. untitled ^^ Communist World, 2011 by Theo Deutinger & Catarina Dantas [Mark#30]. <Communism is still alive. Although capitalism won a victory when the Berlin Wall went down, communism is triumphing as nation states continue to bail out banks in the wake of the recent economic crisis. Global capitalism is hugely unorganized and has no interest in a comprehensive plan for the future of the world – and, if it did, it would not know how to go about achieving such a goal. Global communism, on the other hand, has a clear idea about the organization of the world but does not know how to maintain competition, preserve individual freedom and generate public enthusiasm.

Quand les Net artistes hackent Google Maps Loin de n'être qu'une cartographie numérique de la Terre, Google Maps et ses bébés Street View et Google Earth sont aussi une ressource au service de la créativité des artistes. Comment les artistes détournent-ils les outils du web ? Silicon Maniacs inaugure une nouvelle série consacrée au braconnage artistique sur Internet. Aujourd’hui, les hacking de Google Maps, Google Earth et Google Street View. Depuis la seconde moitié des années 1990, des artistes utilisent le web comme un matériau à part entière. Sites Internet, moteurs de recherche, réseaux sociaux ou mondes virtuels : ils détournent les outils que nous utilisons quotidiennement sur Internet pour questionner nos usages et nos représentation du réel.

Book review: The Map as Art, Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography The Map as Art: Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography, by Katharine Harmon with essays by Gayle Clemans (available on Amazon UK and USA.) Princeton Architectural Press writes: Maps can be simple tools, comfortable in their familiar form. Or they can lead to different destinations: places turned upside down or inside out, territories riddled with marks understood only by their maker, realms connected more to the interior mind than to the exterior world. These are the places of artists' maps, that happy combination of information and illusion that flourishes in basement studios and downtown galleries alike.

40 Maps They Didn’t Teach You In School By the time we graduate high school, we learn that they never taught us the most interesting things in there. Sure, you might be able to name the European countries or point New York on the map, but does that give a you real understanding of how the world functions? To fill this gap, we have gathered a great and informative selection of infographical maps that they should’ve shown us at school: every single one of these maps reveals different fun and interesting facts, which can actually help you draw some pretty interesting conclusions.
