Transportation Is All About Real-Time Data The Global Innovation Series is supported by BMW i, a new concept dedicated to providing mobility solutions for the urban environment. It delivers more than purpose-built electric vehicles — it delivers smart mobility services. Visit bmw-i.com or follow @BMWi on Twitter. In order to tackle urban transportation challenges in cities around the world, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the National Research Foundation of Singapore launched a five-year cooperative project in 2009 — Future Urban Mobility (FM) — to look at new models and technology tools aimed at sustainability. The FM team is one of four interdisciplinary research groups that are part of the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology Centre, or SMART Centre. FM is developing SimMobility, a simulation platform where researchers explore transportation, environmental impacts, energy and land use and the activities of individual travelers in the mix.
Nokia Maps 3D: Nav and Sharing Nokia's web based 3D map service, Nokia Maps 3D, has been updated with navigation, sharing, new search options and more, the company announced on its blog. Located at maps.nokia.com, Nokia Maps 3D now offer 3D imagery of 25 cities around the world, including Barcelona, Berlin, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Milan, New York, Rome and San Francisco. To be able to see the 3D version of the map, you'll have to install a browser extension and restart your browser first. It's worth it, though. Nokia's 3D imagery, especially the transitions seen when zooming and unzooming into an image, is quite spectacular. Search function lets you enter addresses as well as names of businesses and points of interests.

Qualified teacher status (QTS) - Teaching Agency Qualified teacher status (QTS) is the accreditation that enables you to teach in state-maintained and special schools in England and Wales. Who needs QTS? Anyone who wants to teach in a state-maintained school in England or Wales needs to gain QTS, although academies can employ teachers without QTS if they believe they are suitably qualified. Individual academies will decide whether an individual without QTS is suitably qualified to be employed as a teacher.
Crowdmap What Exactly Is Crowdmap? Crowdmap is designed and built by the people behind Ushahidi, a platform that was originally built to crowdsource crisis information. As the platform has evolved, so have its uses. Crowdmap allows you to set up your own map of Ushahidi without having to install it on your own web server. Create Flash Maps To create custom interactive maps for use in StatPlanet, you need the following: See also: To prepare the map so it can be loaded into StatPlanet, you need two layers: Map layer: This layer will contain the map shapes (e.g. regions or provinces). Borders layer: This layer will contain the map borders. (Note: since version 2.3, map text labels are automatically generated and no longer need to be added manually).
UNITAR - UNOSAT 10-12 May 2011, Bergen, Norway. During the 2011 GDACS Stakeholders Meeting, a crowd-sourcing application for geo-tagged photos was released to the disaster management and early responders community. Developed under the EC funded GEO-PICTURES project by AnsuR, in collaboration with UNOSAT, this Android app automatically geo-locates (tags) photos, size them according to bandwidth and send them off to a web-server - all with the touch of one button. In the web-server, photo location is indicated on a map, and the photo can be further assessed, shared with individuals or groups and even uploaded in high resolution if needed. So far, the tool has successfully been used in Haiti, Pakistan and Nigeria, as well as in several exercises.
How to Create a Minimalist Map Design With OpenStreetMap Mapping can be as much about choosing what data not to include as to include, so you can best focus your audience on the story you are telling. Oftentimes with data visualization projects, the story isn’t about the streets or businesses or parks, but rather about the data you’re trying to layer on the map. To help people visualize data like this, I’ve started to design a new minimal base map for [OpenStreetMap]( What’s great about OpenStreetMap is that the data is all [open]( This means I can take the data and design a totally custom experience. Once finished, the map will serve as another option to the traditional OpenStreetMap baselayer. I’m designing the new map in the open-source map design studio [TileMill]( which Development Seed has written before about [here]( The map can be used as a light, very subtle background to add data on top of for use either with our [MapBox hosting platform’s]( map builder or on its own.
