Wind Map

Wind Map
An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future. This map shows you the delicate tracery of wind flowing over the US. The wind map is a personal art project, not associated with any company. We've done our best to make this as accurate as possible, but can't make any guarantees about the correctness of the data or our software. Please do not use the map or its data to fly a plane, sail a boat, or fight wildfires :-) If the map is missing or seems slow, we recommend the latest Chrome browser. Surface wind data comes from the National Digital Forecast Database. If you're looking for a weather map, or just want more detail on the weather today, see these more traditional maps of temperature and wind. Related:  Cartes et fonds de cartes

50 Great Examples of Data Visualization Wrapping your brain around data online can be challenging, especially when dealing with huge volumes of information. And trying to find related content can also be difficult, depending on what data you’re looking for. But data visualizations can make all of that much easier, allowing you to see the concepts that you’re learning about in a more interesting, and often more useful manner. Below are 50 of the best data visualizations and tools for creating your own visualizations out there, covering everything from Digg activity to network connectivity to what’s currently happening on Twitter.

Want to Instagram the Night Sky? Adapter Puts iPhones on Telescopes When it comes to photographing stars or birds in the distance, most people don't think of launching their iPhone's camera app. A new startup is aiming to change that. The startup, Arcturus Labs, is developing a gadget called Magnifi that attaches an iPhone to just about any lens. It allows users to take iPhone photos through microsocopes, telescopes or binoculars. Magnifi's recently married co-founders Xianne and Isaac Penny have raised more than $13,000 on Kickstarter to fund the product, which they say will eventually retail for about $80. Microscope camera adapters generally cost between $30 and $100 — but they aren't as slick as Magnifi. Because you're taking photos with your phone, they're automatically available for cropping and sharing. It's easy to see where the pair got the idea for the lightweight photo adapter: Xianne is a post-doctoral fellow in Pathology; Isaac is a medical device engineer and amateur astronomer. What would you want to photograph with Magnifi?

Infographie : les partis politiques Tunisiens (cliquez sur l’image ci dessus pour l’afficher en grand format) Cartographier les partis politiques Tunisiens n’est pas chose aisée. Un constat s’impose : l’habituel répartition droite-gauche n’a pas de sens dans le paysage politique local, pour peu qu’il en ait encore un dans les démocraties occidentales. Nous avons fait le choix d’une répartition sur cinq branches, en essayant de faire en sorte que certaines proximité reflètent de possibles alliances (socialistes et nationalistes, par exemple), ce qui ne peut se généraliser à l’ensemble. Nous en somme à la version 2.1 de cette visualisation et c’est encore loin d’être parfait, pour arriver à quelque chose de vraiment parlant, nous avons besoin de vous, de vos remarques, des informations que vous voudrez bien nous apporter sur tel ou tel parti nous permettant de mieux le positionner sur cette infographie.
