Its origins can be traced back to about 8,000 BC and it developed from the pictographs and other symbols used to represent trade goods and livestock on clay tablets.

Adventures in Data Analysis-UFO Sightings and Visualizations in CartoDB Today my project was to visualize time series data in CartoDB. I discovered CartoDB about two weeks ago, read their blog (check out Fredo Baart’s water current simulation to see if the Alcatraz escapees could have survived) and fell in love. Excited to get started I grabbed the UFO sighting dataset from the National UFO Reporting Center and went to work. It is very easy to get started with the software. Manipulating data within CartoDB wasn’t difficult and I was able to develop a basic torque visualization within 15 minutes. My very first CartoDB visualization can be found below:

Greek Mythology: FAMILY TREE OF THE GREEK GODS The complete family tree of the gods is displayed over eight indexed charts. The basic structure follows Hesiod's Theogony, but that author's genealogies have been expanded with a plethora of additional gods, spirits and creatures sourced from other classical sources. Where there is disagreement amongst ancient writers as to the genealogy of a certain character, the oldest and/or most popular source has been selected for the chart. An additional family tree depicts the divine genealogy given in Hesiod's Theogony.

Aldarnay. Author and illustrator S. Aldarnay presents each of the Pentacles given in the Key of Solomon, precisely redrawn and with explanations of the divine names, the names of spirits, as well as the vesicles in English, Latin and Hebrew, in an attempt to make the individual’s use of the seals more effective. By presenting the pentacles in full the author hopes that people will be inclined to experiment more with them as the seals are able to bridge the gap between the high magic of angelic conjuration and divine names, and the folk magic which utilizes psalms and spiritual assistance for more day to day concerns.
