early medieval mapping Crowdsourced cartography in PublicEarth, OpenStreetMap | Webware Wikipedia killed the encyclopedia business, in print and online, as it's hard to make a revenue model work that involves paying people to create content when there are hordes of enthusiastic experts around the world willing to do the job for free. The business of mapping may be similarly doomed, as indicated by PublicEarth, a new wiki-style database of places launching Monday, and by the continued improvement in authoring tools at the crowdsourced mapping service OpenStreetMap. PublicEarth PublicEarth is an open database of places. Michael Rubin, who was an architect of Netflix, wanted to bring the same "element of delight" of connecting people to things they enjoy. As with other crowdsourced place databases, anyone can insert a location. The system will have a recommendation engine that learns what you like. The real value to PublicEarth is that it can find places that aren't, as they say, on the map. OpenStreetMap PublicEarth is an open database of items on top of a map. The crowded map

Making Maps: DIY Cartography Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies - DECIMA: The Digitally Encoded Census Information and Mapping Archive, and the Project for a Geo-Spatial and Sensory Digital Map of Renaissance Florence Find using OpenURL DECIMA: The Digitally Encoded Census Information and Mapping Archive, and the Project for a Geo-Spatial and Sensory Digital Map of Renaissance Florence In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: A project at the University of Toronto, with funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRCC), is developing a mapping tool that will allow for the spatial organization of early modern historical, cultural, and sensory materials. DECIMA's project to create a digital map of Renaissance Florence integrates two sets of sources, one visual and one manuscript-based. The major text source for the DECIMA project is a 1561-62 tax census of Florence called the "Decima Granducale." Incorrect username or password.

Wiki 30 Superb Examples of Infographic Maps As you search the web you’ll come across a wide range of interactive and graphical maps. Deciding when, where and how to integrate or display a map on your site is the first step, the second should be what technology and illustrations to use. If you’re all about interaction, JQuery, Ajax, or Flash are all effective technologies that hold their own ground. Map illustrations are a dime a dozen however, a strong and balanced display of graphics, information, and colors is what makes an infographic stand out and reach its target audience effectively. As designers, we’re constantly searching for ways to improve and style our designs, this is exactly what the following 30 infographics and sites display below; the breaking of rules.

HabitatMap - Home Deluge: How 300.000 Norwegians Move House in a Year The short animation titled "Deluge" [] by Even Westvang reveals how public data can be analyzed to reveal potentially interesting patterns. In particular, this movie demonstrates the patterns of 300.000 Norwegians moving house, by cross-referencing the tax records of about 4 million individual Norwegians from 2006 and 2007. In the movie, the data is filtered by paramaters like yearly income or age, and a distinction is made between 'incoming' (red) and 'outgoing' (blue) citizens. As a result, one can perceive that elderly people generally move over relatively short distances, while high-earners tend to move out of the big cities to the shores. Interestingly, in Norway all the incomes and fortunes of all tax paying individuals are made public every year, which consists of the full name, year of birth, postal code and their attendant financial data. Watch the movie below. Via @moritz_stefaner.

Blog Archive » Time travel Map in photo above is a part of one of my final projects I did for my last school, London College of Printing (now London College of Communication). It was an attemt to redesign the London Underground map. In the beginning when I didn’t know what to do with the project, I called it “impossible mission”. Well, I knew couldn’t just do a normal re-design; something had to be added. When the analog bit was done, I photographed the map, scanned it and put it in the background in Illustrator. Next step was to create a new type of background zoning system. I also wanted to change the colours to more releveant colours. Below are images showing the process of drawing the map in Illustrator. This is the final map focused on Elephant & Castle. This is the final map without zones.
