An Atlas of Cyberspaces

An Atlas of Cyberspaces
This is an atlas of maps and graphic representations of the geographies of the new electronic territories of the Internet, the World-Wide Web and other emerging Cyberspaces. These maps of Cyberspaces - cybermaps - help us visualise and comprehend the new digital landscapes beyond our computer screen, in the wires of the global communications networks and vast online information resources. The cybermaps, like maps of the real-world, help us navigate the new information landscapes, as well being objects of aesthetic interest. Some of the maps you will see in the Atlas of Cyberspaces will appear familiar, using the cartographic conventions of real-world maps, however, many of the maps are much more abstract representations of electronic spaces, using new metrics and grids. For more information on the geographies of the Internet, the Web and Cyberspaces, check out The Geography of Cyberspace Directory. (© Copyright - Martin Dodge, 2007.

NewsMaps - Mappa.Mundi Magazine - Map of the Month NewsMaps: Topographic Mapping of Information NewsMaps are one of best examples of information mapping available on the Web today. They are also among the most map-like of information maps, borrowing literally and liberally from the cartographer's toolbox. Developing graphical methods to represent the three-dimensional form of terrain on flat paper maps has long been a challenge in cartography [3]. The spatial properties of location and elevation in the maps are used to encode key characteristics of the form and structure of the information space in a single visual snapshot. To produce the daily NewsMaps maps the ThemeScape system applies sophisticated and proprietary lexical algorithms to analyze and in some senses 'understand' the content of text documents and the relations between them to distil the key topics and form the map. NewsMaps are delivered over the Web in a fully interactive viewer, which allows you to explore the map on your desktop.

Map Artists Love this. Sent from Hi-d this afternoonMap Artists Anagrammes de Métro Iván Skvarca m'a signalé un site Web proposant des cartes de métro dans lesquelles les noms de stations ont été remplacés par des anagrammes. S'étonnant que cela n'ait pas encore été effectué pour le métro parisien, il m'a suggéré de m'y lancer. En fait, Michel Clavel avait déjà anagrammatisé plusieurs portes de Paris dans son livre Paris en jeux paru fin 2005, et il m'a aussi informé que l'oulipienne Michelle Grangaud a publié en 1990 un recueil de poèmes anagrammatiques sur les stations du métro parisien. En 1999, elle a même présenté cinq de ses anagrammes comme s'il s'agissait d'un fragment de plan, et Alain Chevrier m'a appris que la RATP l'a affiché quelque temps dans le métro. Mais comme Nicolas Graner m'a aimablement (ou sadiquement !) envoyé la liste des ~300 noms de stations, je n'ai pas résisté au masochisme de les anagrammatiser moi-même. Si les anagrammes vous amusent, il est probable que les pangrammes vous intéresseront aussi. Retour à mes exercices oulipiens de début 2006

Book Chapter Visualization has proven to be an effective strategy for supporting users in coping with complexity in knowledge- and information-rich scenarios. Up to now, however, information visualization and knowledge visualization have been distinct research areas, which have been developed independently of each other. This book aims toward bringing both approaches together and looking for synergies, which may be used for fostering learning, instruction, and problem solving. This introductory article seeks to provide a conceptual framework and a preview of the contributions of this volume. The most important concepts referred to in this book are defined and a conceptual rationale is provided as to why visualization may be effective in fostering, processing and managing knowledge and information.

12 Cool Visualizations to Explore Books | FlowingData There's reading a book, and then there's looking at, exploring, and experiencing a book. That's what these 12 book visualizations are for.

Literature Map This one focuses on the authors and uses some kind of multidimensional scaling to place similar authors closer to each other.

Bed maps We leave maps behind in our wake. An unmade bed is a sort of map, a map of the night, where we spend about a third of our day. I'm not sure what it says, whether the bed is more territory than map, but a photograph of the bed is more map than territory: it is flat and rectilinear and it suggests topography, geography, movement. For all the stillness of sleep, sleep shakes up the landscape. A bed is a place, one of the more important (if judged by time spent in it) of our lives. As an experiment of sorts I'm taking photographs of our bed before it's made in the morning.
