Loading OSM data This guide describes how to install, set-up and configure all the necessary software to have a database of OpenStreetMap data which you can use to render maps or develop stylesheets. The step-by-step instructions are written for Ubuntu Linux 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr), but have notes on adaptations needed for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin). They should transfer without much difficulty to other distributions. Basic Linux command line and PostgreSQL knowledge is required.
yEd - Graph Editor yEd is a powerful desktop application that can be used to quickly and effectively generate high-quality diagrams.

GeoSilk GeoSilk is a set of icons designed for open source web-based geospatial software. The set is an extension of Mark James's Silk icons—probably the most widely used set of icons on the web—that incorporates metaphors for spatial constructs defined by Jody Garnett's uDig icons. Take a gander at the full set or download it from the SVN repository. GeoSilk is available under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License, meaning anyone may use it for any purpose and make any changes they like.

Google maps tutorial (part 5/5): How to create Fusion Tables heat map Tutorial goals: understand the ideas behind Google Fusion Tables heat maps; create an interactive map showing state-by-state U.S. population, as shown in the sample below. (This post is part five of a 5-part tutorial on creating Fusion Tables intensity map; the other parts are listed as related posts at end of this post) How Fusion Tables works to create heat maps It is essential that you understand the idea and the steps in creating a Fusion Tables map; otherwise, you will easily get lost when working on the demo map in this tutorial.

Leaflet | © OpenStreetMap contributors, CC-BY-SA, Tiles courtesy of Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team Best Infographics Ideas and Free Tools Look at pretty much every blog, professional site and presentation these days, and you will notice that most of them have infographics, which are charts that display a visual image in order to supply data to the user. They are highly functional and often work more effectively than graphs and charts alone. They are also more pleasing to the eye and can break down concepts for easier understanding. But for every good one, there is a bad one that looks cluttered and doesn’t manage to get the point across. That is why people seek out both inspiration and tools to help them make the most out of this valuable resource. Here are some of the best examples and tools to assist you in creating your own.
Space-Time Research With self-service options offering enormous benefits in terms of speed, availability and cost, SuperWEB2 gives beautifully visualised ad-hoc tabulation on the internet. Featuring integrated charts, maps and metadata, users can help themselves to insights using their preferred browser, readily performing queries and selecting from a range of open standard outputs. With demand for timely information growing, SuperWEB2 offers self-service, web-based access to data for external, skilled users such as analysts, researchers and subject matter experts. Allowing government departments and other organisations to share information transparently, SuperWEB2 uses web-based ad-hoc tabulation to enable analysis across millions of table cells without compromising confidentiality. Previously, organisations offering any degree of transparency were limited to responding manually to information requests – a time consuming and often labour-intensive process.

Exhausted Browser Memory 1. 9 free mapping tools and resources for visual storytelling The resources available for working with data and visualising it have become more numerous and more accessible in recent years. "We find ourselves in this perfect storm where suddenly journalists, everybody, is paying attention to data and the ability to collect data and create new data," Vizzuality's Andrew Hill told Journalism.co.uk earlier this year. Vizzuality created open source mapping tool CartoDB, and the team also set up "the map academy" where journalists can access free resources to learn more about online mapping. Mapping can be a powerful storytelling tool, which journalists can use to take their audience on a journey following a narrative storyline, or to illustrate and make sense of fast moving breaking news events. Here is a list of 11 mapping tools reporters can use to add an extra dimension to their reporting and to build a more immersive experience for readers. CartoDB
Transport - Thunderforest Public transport information for every community on Earth - that’s the goal of the Transport map. Want to use these tiles?

Enterprise Software Doesn't Have to Suck: Social Network Analysis using R and Gephis After learning the basics of R, I decided to learn something harder last week. I picked Social Network Analysis (SNA) to learn the concepts of SNA and R. My primary interest in SNA is visual exploration of networks, so I needed to find a tool first. Which tool to use for visual SNA?
