What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer.

GIS Data Formats, Design and Quality - University of California, Davis About this course: In this course, the second in the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Specialization, you will go in-depth with common data types (such as raster and vector data), structures, quality and storage during four week-long modules: Week 1: Learn about data models and formats, including a full understanding of vector data and raster concepts. You will also learn about the implications of a data’s scale and how to load layers from web services. Week 2: Create a vector data model by using vector attribute tables, writing query strings, defining queries, and adding and calculating fields. You'll also learn how to create new data through the process of digitizing and you'll use the built-in Editor tools in ArcGIS.

OpenHeatMap Gallery How the US unemployment rate has varied over the last five years, county-by-county and month-by-month Map friends and followers and search terms around the world House prices for different neighborhoods in Boulder, Colorado AGBeat The rise in demand for visualization of information in the form of graphics and infographics is happening at a staggering pace and these visualizations are popping up in board rooms across America, on blogs and social networks, and in client presentations, in an effort to present data in a memorable, easy to digest visual format. Truth be known, most of these visualizations are just as ugly as a Power Point presentation theme from 1994, but at least people are trying, we suppose. Speaking of Power Point, many people whip out their drag and drop skills and create “infographics” for lack of a better term, to achieve their goal of visualization, but this often falls short. Yesterday, AGBeat introduced you to Piktochart, an infographic app for busy professionals that come with pre-loaded themes of infographics that are far superior to most peoples’ PPT skills. But sometimes, you may be looking for a fast, simple way to add a single chart to your blog to illustrate a point.

Stats, Maps n Pix: The Global Human Settlement Layer: an amazing new global population dataset At the recent Habitat III conference on housing and sustainable development in Quito, Ecuador (17-20 October 2016) the European Commission launched a new Global Human Settlement (GHS) dataset. That's what this post is about. Before that, here are some basic data details - Landsat data from 1975, 1990, 2000 and 2014 were processed and analysed in order to produce three different GHS products: one on population (GHS-POP), one on built-up areas (GHS-BUILT) and one city model dataset (GHS-SMOD). But this is already getting too technical, so let's look at some maps - I've just created a few in 3D for fun in order to give you an idea of what the population dataset looks like.
