Knight Lab Projects Northwestern University Knight Lab builds software that helps inform and engage the public. Our projects range from professionally developed products used by newsrooms around the world to experimental prototypes that predict voting behavior, recommend content, and track political rhetoric. As a Lab, not every idea grows in to a full-blown product. Some ideas are born, built, and die before being released to the public. Others move from a proof-of-concept built by students in a Northwestern classroom to the Lab for professional development and design and are then used by media makers around the world. You’ll find everything we’ve put at least a little development in to on these pages.

Map Maker Google Map Maker officially closed on March 31, 2017, and many of its features are being integrated into Google Maps. Since 2008, the Google Map Maker community has edited and moderated millions of features to improve the Google Maps experience. To make it easier for all Google Maps users to contribute changes to the map, we’ve started to graduate functionality from Map Maker to Google Maps on both desktop and mobile.
Google Maps API Tutorial Instead of developing your own page with Google Maps API, it's possible to write a KML file and send it to Google Maps. Google Maps understands a small subset of KML 2.0, and implements markers, polylines, polygons, info windows and a sidebar. A simple KML file contains an XML header, a KML header and a <Document>...</Document> structure. That <Document> can contain a series of <Placemark>s which each describe one marker or polyline. Here's what a basic XML file looks like ❍ IcoMoon - icon packs IcoMoon is striving to build and provide the best iconography and icon management tool for perfectionists.

Using Dynamic Non-Spatial Data In GeoCommons In my previous post, I described how I used a Python script to scrape power outage information from a local web site and convert it into an RSS feed. In this post, I’ll show how I used GeoCommons to visualize the changing information over time. The process starts by creating a data set in GeoCommmons based on a URL link to the feed created in the previous post. The general process for doing that can be found here in the GeoCommons documentation. My feed is not a GeoRSS feed so it has no location data of its own for GeoCommons to work with.

Thankfully, there are several ways to do this but the only question you need to ask yourself is, “How secure does my data need to be?” Although Google Maps gives you the option to remove your saved maps from search results, a public URL of your map still exists and can be accessed by anyone with that URL. If in doubt, keep your map’s URL to yourself or use Google Earth instead. Mapping Excel Data Using VBA Process Trends created an Excel spreadsheet that incorporates the work of Juice Analytics and simon_a to geocode addresses and prepare them for Google Earth and Google Maps.
