The new features are described below and you can also view the online slideshow.

GIS Tools for Hadoop by Esri Looking at data without location, most of the time seems like looking at just part of a story. Including location and geography in analysis reveals patterns and associations that otherwise are missed. As Big Data emerges as a new frontier for analysis, including location in Big Data is becoming significantly important. Data that includes location, and that is enhanced with geographic information in a structured form, is often referred to as Spatial Data. MMQGIS Home > Linux > Mmqgis Michael Minn ( 28 February 2014 Data Wrangler UPDATE: The Stanford/Berkeley Wrangler research project is complete, and the software is no longer actively supported. Instead, we have started a commercial venture, Trifacta. For the most recent version of the tool, see the free Trifacta Wrangler. Why wrangle? Too much time is spent manipulating data just to get analysis and visualization tools to read it. Wrangler is designed to accelerate this process: spend less time fighting with your data and more time learning from it.

[site de carto] explication de prettymaps prettymaps is an experimental map from Stamen Design. It is an interactive map composed of multiple freely available, community-generated data sources: All the Flickr shapefiles rendered as a semi-transparent white ground on top of which all the other layers are displayed. Urban areas from Natural Earth both as a standalone layer and combined with Flickr shapefiles for cities and neighbourhoods. Road, highway and path data collected by the OpenStreetMap (OSM) project. In all there are four different raster layers and six data layers (that mean all the map data is sent in its raw form and rendered as visual elements by the browser) that may be visible depending on the bounding box and zoom level of the map.

Teaching resources Individual and multiple class sets of excellent resources produced by the Global Education Project are currently available – while stocks last. These resources are relevant to primary and secondary Geography courses across Australia. Resources ordered will be available for collection from the GTAV Office in Camberwell South, Victoria. If not collected, there will be a postage and handling fee for each delivery. A number of these resources are also available at the Global Education website as free downloads –

ArcGIS Desktop This topic provides a set of links to a collection of various ArcGIS tutorials used to perform a number of common tasks in ArcGIS. Find the tutorial that you would like to work through by clicking the links in the tables below. To work through the ArcGIS Desktop tutorials, you need to install the tutorial data from the ArcGIS Desktop Tutorial Data setup, which is part of the ArcGIS Desktop installation download or media. If the tutorial data has been installed on your system, look for it in C:\arcgis\ArcTutor (the default installation location). In many cases, you will need write access to that location to perform the tutorial.

Protovis Protovis composes custom views of data with simple marks such as bars and dots. Unlike low-level graphics libraries that quickly become tedious for visualization, Protovis defines marks through dynamic properties that encode data, allowing inheritance, scales and layouts to simplify construction. Protovis is free and open-source, provided under the BSD License. [site] Cartographie esthétique prettymaps The short version is simply that there's a huge amount of data being sent across the network and then processed and finally rendered by your computer. We've looked at the logs for the machine hosting prettymaps and it seems happy enough serving all the requests that people are sending it. The other reason is that the data hasn't been compressed or optimized as much it could be. For example, the four separate image layers could be collapsed in to a single layer. Likewise the data layers, although we've found a few more places to tighten things up since we first launched.
