Population Lines Print I recently produced a map entitled “Population Lines”, which shows population density by latitude. The aim was to achieve a simple and fresh perspective on these well-known data. I have labelled a few key cities for orientation purposes but I’ve left off most of the conventional cartographical adornments. I am really pleased with the end result not least because it resembles Joy Division’s iconic Unknown Pleasures album cover, which in itself is a great example of data visualisation as art. The data, from NASA SEDAC, have been mapped many times before and in many beautiful ways but none seem to me quite as compelling as the simple approach here of using only black and grey lines across the page.
Dream Moods A-Z Dream Dictionary Symbols are the language of dreams. A symbol can invoke a feeling or an idea and often has a much more profound and deeper meaning than any one word can convey.

Discrimination and poor job prospects hit children of immigrants 2/7/2015 - The children of immigrants continue to face major difficulties integrating in OECD countries, especially in the European Union, where their poor educational outcomes leave many struggling to find work, according to a new OECD/EU report.

World Sunlight Map Watch the sun rise and set all over the world on this real-time, computer-generated illustration of the earth's patterns of sunlight and darkness. The clouds are updated daily with current weather satellite imagery. The Mercator projection used here is one way of looking at the spherical earth as a flat map. Used since the 16th century for navigation, straight lines on this map can be used accurately as compass bearings but the size and shape of continents are distorted. Uniform Crime Reporting The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program has been the starting place for law enforcement executives, students of criminal justice, researchers, members of the media, and the public at large seeking information on crime in the nation. The program was conceived in 1929 by the International Association of Chiefs of Police to meet the need for reliable uniform crime statistics for the nation. In 1930, the FBI was tasked with collecting, publishing, and archiving those statistics. Today, four annual publications, Crime in the United States, National Incident-Based Reporting System, Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted, and Hate Crime Statistics are produced from data received from over 18,000 city, university/college, county, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies voluntarily participating in the program.

Civil Engineering Magazine: April 2010 Volume 80, Number 4 Part 1 Part 2 By Anne Elizabeth Powell Portraits by Skip Brown In mid-January, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) convened a series of five roundtables in Washington, D.C., that were conceived as in-depth discussions of how best to address the nation¹s significant infrastructure deficiencies, which threaten not only the safety and welfare of the public but also the nation¹s economic growth and competitiveness. Which countries have the most equal LGBT laws? Mexico has become the latest country to effectively legalise same-sex marriage, after the country’s Supreme Court issued an opinion ruling that it is unconstitutional for states to define marriage as a union only between a man and a woman. It follows last month’s referendum in Ireland, which saw an overwhelming majority vote in favour of amending its constitution to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry. According to the the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association’s latest report, a total 18 countries around the world now recognise full same-sex marriage, with a further 16 offering another form of union such as a civil partnership. At the other end of the LGBT rights scale, 75 countries still criminalise same-sex sexual acts between consenting adults – down from 92 countries in 2006.
Gridded Population of the World - GPW v3 Introduction Note: "Gridded Population of the World, v4" is now available and supersedes GPWv3. GPWv4 provides gridded population estimates with an output resolution of 30 arc-seconds (approximately 1 km at the equator) for the years 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015, and 2020 based on the results of the 2010 round of censuses, which occurred between 2005 and 2014. For more details about GPWv4 and to access the new data see GPWv3 depicts the distribution of human population across the globe. GPWv3 provides globally consistent and spatially explicit human population information and data for use in research, policy making, and communications.
