Nouveaux regards cartographiques sur la mondialisation La mondialisation lance de nombreux défis à la représentation cartographique. On pourra citer, sans prétendre à l'exhaustivité, l'interrogation sur la projection cartographique pour restituer les multipolarités du Monde, sur les découpages pertinents (États, continents) pour en rendre compte, sur la représentation des interdépendances dans des dynamiques multiscalaires aux temporalités différenciées. Du local au global ou vice-versa, les enchevêtrements d'échelles et les intégrations différenciées, tant de degré que de nature, ont-ils conduit à saisir autrement ce processus majeur de l'organisation du monde contemporain ? Les techniques numériques associées à de nouveaux modes de représentation cartographique permettent-elles de rendre compte des multiples formes de la mondialisation ? Quelles sont les limites et les atouts de la représentation cartographique de la mondialisation ?

Les prix ont encore grimpé de 9% en un an, remettant le mètre carré à son niveau de 2008 (2 500 euros). Il est vrai que la demande a bondi, poussant les propriétaires à gonfler la valeur de leur bien. L’œil, la Terre et le cartographe, par Philippe Rekacewicz (Le Monde diplomatique, mars 2009) L’Atlas 2009 du « Monde diplomatique » La carte est une composition visuelle et le cartographe l’interface intuitive entre la réalité et sa transposition. Que se passe-t-il quand les anciennes représentations ne fonctionnent plus et que les nouvelles n’ont pas encore pris corps ? Quand le monde bipolaire de la guerre froide est remplacé par une géopolitique mouvante, multipolaire, complexe ? Le rôle du cartographe, au carrefour de la science, de la technologie, de l’éthique, de la politique et même de l’art, est alors de tenter de saisir, grâce à la richesse du langage des crayons, le nouveau, l’inattendu, l’inédit...

30 Places to Find Open Data on the Web Finding an interesting data set and a story it tells can be the most difficult part of producing an infographic or data visualization. Data visualization is the end artifact, but it involves multiple steps – finding reliable data, getting the data in the right format, cleaning it up (an often underestimated step in the amount of time it takes!) and then finding the story you will eventually visualize. Following is a list useful resources for finding data.

DATA Report 2011 With fewer than 1,000 days to go until the 2015 deadline for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), ONE’s new Special Report Tracking Development Assistance, explores overall trends in official development assistance (ODA) and shows how donor countries are doing in their efforts to support Africa. This special briefing follows on from ONE’s main 2013 DATA Report report, Financing the Fight for Africa’s Transformation, published in May. Using preliminary OECD DAC data on development assistance for 2012, ONE reveals that global aid flows declined for a second year in a row, taking many donors further away from reaching their aid targets, and development assistance to Africa and sub-Saharan Africa was cut disproportionately. Sixteen of the 24 major donor countries reduced their aid to the region last year.

SourceWatch Koch Spy Agency Led by Voter Fraud Huckster The Kochs have been complaining about a "lack of civility in politics" as they seek to boost their public image--but one of their top operatives helped propel perhaps the most egregious case of race-baiting voter fraud hucksterism in recent years. At the same time that the Kochs have been on a PR blitz, publicly spinning an image of themselves as well-intentioned patriots trying to make the world a better place and decrying "character assassination," they've been quietly ramping up a clandestine surveillance and intelligence gathering operation focused on their perceived political enemies, Ken Vogel reports at Politico. At the helm of this "competitive intelligence" operation is a man named Mike Roman, Vice President of Research for Kochs' Freedom Partners and who was paid $265,000 last year, according to Freedom Partners' recent tax filing.
