Earth and Moon Viewer Welcome to Earth and Moon Viewer. Viewing the Earth You can view either a map of the Earth showing the day and night regions at this moment, or view the Earth from the Sun, the Moon, the night side of the Earth, above any location on the planet specified by latitude, longitude and altitude, from a satellite in Earth orbit, or above various cities around the globe.
La pyramide des données aux savoirs Mushon Zer-Aviv at School of Data: “Seeing is believing. When working with raw data we’re often encouraged to present it differently, to give it a form, to map it or visualize it. But all maps lie. In fact, maps have to lie, otherwise they wouldn’t be useful. Some are transparent and obvious lies, such as a tree icon on a map often represents more than one tree. Noumea, New Caledonia New Caledonia represents a nexus of cultures and resources. At its center is Grande Terre, the third largest island in the Pacific. The indigenous population is Melanesian, with a Polynesian minority, but New Caledonia remains a French territory. Interview with Suzanne Blier on WorldMap, Easy-to-Use GIS Suzanne Blier is Allen Whitehill Clowes Professor of Fine Arts and of African and African American Studies at Harvard University. She is an historian of African art and architecture in both the History of Art and Architecture and African and African American Studies Departments. She also is a member of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science. She is Co-Chair of an Electronic Geo-Spatial Database AfricaMap, a site that expanded into WorldMap. WorldMap is an open source GIS tool that enables anyone anywhere in the world to create their own maps and overlay them with data for free. Why did Harvard create this?
Relief Map i Hans Braxmeier, Donaustraße 13, 89231 Neu-Ulm, firstname.lastname@example.org Intention The vision of Maps-For-Free is to offer free worldwide relief maps and other layers which can easily be integrated into existing map projects.

The Pipeline - School of Data 2012-06-01 by Stefan Urbanek "We are missing data literacy" was mentioned by Tim Berners-Lee at Open Government Data Camp 2010 in London. Here we are in 2012 in Berlin, together with OKFN, P2PU and their friends preparing content of School of Data from the very beginning. Based on our lively discussions lead by Rufus Pollock, reviews by Peter Murray-Rust and Friedrich Lindenberg, I've created the the pipeline based skill map that I will talk about here. The Pipeline Ancient Earth globe This visualization is created and maintained by Ian Webster. See more of my work at ianww.com or email me at email@example.com.

spatial@ucsb - UCSB Center for Spatial Studies Making our daily environments smart through technologies has been on research and political agendas for more than three decades, with a primary interest in the outdoor environments of cities. Smart city projects are now found worldwide, focusing on sustainability, e-governance, transportation, health, etc. by deploying innovative technologies for sensing, social networking, and knowledge integration. To some extent, campuses can be seen as “small cities,” raising similar concerns for a particular kind of population. Additionally, smart campuses have their own challenges and opportunities, e.g., the support of creativity and interdisciplinary collaboration in science or the involvement of technologically savvy students. Spatial thinking and computing are thought to be key enablers for all these aspects of smart campuses, but this case needs to be made more effectively with university administrators and domain scientists. Participants will address three general categories of questions:
Map Collections Home Page The Library of Congress Search by Keyword | Browse by Geographic Location Index | Subject Index | Creator Index | Title Index The Geography and Map Division of the Library of Congress holds more than 4.5 million items, of which Map Collections represents only a small fraction, those that have been converted to digital form. Carte empathique - The XPLANE Collection We designed the Empathy Map at XPLANE many years ago, as part of a human-centered design toolkit we call Gamestorming. This particular tool helps teams develop deep, shared understanding and empathy for other people. People use it to help them improve customer experience, to navigate organizational politics, to design better work environments, and a host of other things. The Empathy Map has succeeded beyond our wildest dreams. It has been featured in the Stanford D School curriculum and in Harvard Business Review, where David Kelley, founder of IDEO, and his business partner Tom Kelley, listed it as one of “Three Creativity Challenges from IDEO’s Leaders.” Why update it?
