29 of the world’s largest bike-sharing programs in one map - Quartz New York’s new system is compact and dense. Washington DC’s is expansive and sparse. Seoul’s is bifurcated. Paris’s is comprehensive. The geographic footprint of a city’s bike-sharing system can reveal both the municipality’s level of commitment to transportation alternatives as well as the topography of the surrounding area. The maps above show the locations of all docking stations for 29 bike-sharing programs around the world. Not all of the major bike-sharing programs are included, mostly because details are scarce on many such systems in China.

Michel Foucher et la subjectivité des projections cartographiques, reflets d’une certaine vision du monde | Le Creuset [v. Bêta] L’émission culturelle de deuxième partie de soirée Ce soir ou jamais (France 3) consacrait ce mardi 7 février une partie de sa revue de presse aux représentations cartographiques du monde et ce, en lien avec l’exposition « La France en relief » tenue au Grand Palais (Paris) depuis le 18 janvier 2012[1]. Invité en compagnie de Sylvie Brunel[2], Michel Foucher[3] a exposé le caractère très subjectif des projections cartographiques, depuis celle de Gérard Mercator, géographe flamand du XVIe siècle (1512-1594), qui fausse la taille et la position des continents et des États mais qui demeure toujours un support utilisé par les départements d’État, les organisations internationales ou encore Google. Annette Ciattoni (dir.), Géographie 2de (manuel), Paris : Hatier, 2010, p. 10. Or, la projection de Peters, plus respectueuse des superficies mais non-exempte de défauts, est encore sous-utilisée[4]. Dans son ouvrage réédité – La bataille des cartes : analyse critique des visions du monde (F.

Global flight-path maps: Five interpretations 28 May 2013Last updated at 20:43 ET Michael Markieta's images depicting flight paths across the planet attracted huge interest from our readers. What do the maps reveal? The art critic Estelle Lovatt, estellelovatt.com Wow, it's beautiful. It's almost like contemporary fractalisation - based on fractals, those beautiful divisions of science and nature. Rothko might have liked the images I would definitely exhibit these images. One of the things artists have to do today is to keep up with contemporary visual imagery. The environmentalist Bill Hemmings, aviation and shipping programme manager at Transportenvironment.org Continue reading the main story In pictures There are currently more than 58,000 flight paths criss-crossing the globe, but each individual airport services only a limited number of others. The busiest airports by continent [measured by number of direct-flight destinations] include Sao Paulo, Beijing, Sydney, Frankfurt, Cairo and Atlanta. In pictures: Global flight paths Mark Vernon

Maps With Me: la meilleure application de Cartes Hors-Ligne ? (Vidéo) De nombreuses applications de cartes hors-ligne existent sur le Google Play, cependant la majorité d’entre elles ne concernent qu’un pays ou qu’une ville. Avec Maps With Me, nous avons accès aux cartes du monde entier, pas moins de 345 pays sont maintenant disponibles ! Pourquoi nous vous conseillons cette application aujourd’hui ? Tout simplement car elle a été testée par nos soins durant plus de trois mois à l’étranger. Outre quelques points d’intérêt et éléments absents dans certains pays (les cartes sont mises à jour régulièrement) et un repérage GPS parfois un peu longuet, cette application fait quasiment un sans faute ! Les fonctionnalités sont multiples et doivent être connues pour pouvoir exploiter au mieux cette application, pour cela voici une vidéo de présentation (version Pro), utile pour vous faire une idée de ses qualités et défauts: LITE ou PRO (3€68) En plus de ces fonctions, MapsWithMe Pro prend en charge : [androidapp=1535] AndroTesteur

Attoma : Cartographier la mobilité. Dès ses premiers projets, l’ agence Attoma s’intéresse au design d’information, où les besoins d’organiser la complexité se nichent, comme dans le domaine de l’information financière par exemple. Appliquer le design à l’information, c’est rendre perceptible les flux, les masses de données et ceci avec une visée humaniste : hiérarchiser l’information de manière à ce qu’elle soit accessible par tous. Attoma : de l’information comme matière à la représentation d’une offre de mobilité Rapidement, Attoma se passionne pour le concept de mobilité urbaine, en travaillant sur divers projets autour de la représentation de capacités de mobilité, pour le compte des villes ou des opérateurs d’infrastructures de transport. Dans cette perspective, l’agence réalise entre 2001 et 2007 les bornes RATP du passe Navigo et en 2011, la SNCF R&D fait appel à Attoma pour développer une borne et une application mobile de covoiturage .

2011 à la carte Tour d'horizon des meilleures cartes de 2011 par l'auteur du site anglais de datavisualisation Spatial Analysis. Des connections sur Facebook aux collaborations scientifiques, tout se cartographie ! Alors que 2011 touche à sa fin, il est bon de revenir sur cette année déterminante pour la cartographie et l’analyse spatiale. Les données géographiques se sont massivement ouvertes, et ont été rendues largement accessibles, conduisant à la production presque quotidienne de cartes inédites et intéressantes. L’usage croissant de technologie telle que les Google Fusion Tables a rendu la cartographie des données plus facile que jamais. Le nombre de cartes affligeantes est malheureusement également en augmentation – en grande partie en raison de la préférence du web pour la projection de Mercator et les “push-pins” (“punaises”). Pour trouver l’inspiration pour une nouvelle année de cartographie, et sans classement particulier, voilà le Best Of 2011 de l’analyse spatiale. Voyage dans la galaxie

How to Make an Interactive Network Visualization Networks! They are all around us. The universe is filled with systems and structures that can be organized as networks. In this tutorial, we will focus on creating an interactive network visualization that will allow us to get details about the nodes in the network, rearrange the network into different layouts, and sort, filter, and search through our data. In this example, each node is a song. Try out the visualization on different songs to see how the different layouts and filters look with the different graphs. Technology This visualization is a JavaScript based web application written using the powerful D3 visualization library. jQuery is also used for some DOM element manipulation. If you hate CoffeeScript, you can always compile the code to JavaScript and start there.The code itself is actually written in CoffeeScript, a little language that is easy to learn, and compiles down to regular JavaScript. Quick CoffeeScript Notes Functions Indentation matters Semicolons and Parentheses

The New Cartographers: The rise of mapping & augmented intelligence Every year the Cartography and Geographic Information Society holds a competition – the equivalent of the Academy Awards for maps — for the best map of the United States. While it’s often won by one of the major players in the mapping world, like the US Census bureau, in 2010 it was won by a one-man shop run by David Imus of Eugene Oregon. Imus’s map differed not just in the scale of operation, but in the very way he went about constructing it. Imus, his map and his technique for producing it, seem like an anachronistic throw back to a 1950s world of exacto knives. Finding intelligence in Big Data Much has been written about the proliferation of data over the past few years. But data in and of itself is useless — just a pile of 1′s and 0′s stacked together in server farms dotted across the nation. For many smaller decisions we employ software agents (algorithms that maximize utility functions) and these work without human intervention. Augmented Intelligence Map design

Penser l'espace | Le XXIe siècle est celui de la géographie September | 2012 | bVisual A Visio user recently asked if it is possible to assign shapes to layers from a list. In his case, he has an Excel table which he has exported shapes and their text using Visio’s Shape Reports feature, to which he has added a column named Layer, and he wants to assign the shapes to these layers. In this article, I demonstrate how this can be done. I decided to use my MVP Session Wheel diagram ( see ) for this example because it already has some layers assigned. I created a new Shape Report called Presenter Shapes, where I filtered all shapes on the current page to those where the Presenter Shape Data row exists, and the Presenter actually has a value: I then chose to only export the <Shape ID> and Presenter columns, ordered by <Shape ID>: I then ran the report to export into a new Excel Workbook: This is just so that I could quickly name some layer for each row. Finally, I had everything in place to write some VBA code.
