Ayotzinapa and Tlatlaya: Geopolitics, occupation of the country and State #Terrorism | #NarcoGovernment #Mexico

Ayotzinapa and Tlatlaya: Geopolitics, occupation of the country and State #Terrorism | #NarcoGovernment #Mexico | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

El 30 de junio de 2014, en Tlatlaya, Estado de México el Ejército Mexicano ejecutó a 22 personas. Algunas de ellas presentaban un “tiro de gracia”. Después de la masacre, los militares montaron una escena de un falso enfrentamiento, sembrando armas en los cuerpos abatidos. A pocos kilómetros de Tlatlaya, en Iguala, Guerrero, la noche del 26 y la madrugada del 27 de septiembre, policías municipales ejecutaron un operativo en contra de un grupo de estudiantes de la Normal Rural “Isidro Burgos” de Ayotzinapa, Guerrero. En el operativo asesinaron a tres de normalista, uno de los cuales fue cruelmente desollado. Asesinaron también a otras tres personas (no estudiantes) e hirieron a más de 20, una de las cuales sufrió muerte cerebral. Las fuerzas policiacas detuvieron y secuestraron a 43 estudiantes, quienes, a más de dos meses de los hechos, siguen sin ser presentados.

 

En Ayotzinapa y Tlatlaya se sintetiza la violencia sistemática del Estado hacia la población, la impunidad generalizada y el acumulado de agravios a los derechos de los pueblos. Pero de un modo más profundo ambos casos representan la dimensión de la ocupación neo-colonial de México y los rasgos más crudos de la dictadura cívico-militar y su estado de excepción permanente como único modo para sostenerse.

Legendary Lands: Umberto Eco on the Greatest #Maps of #Imaginary Places | #dh | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
"Often the object of a desire, when desire is transformed into hope, becomes more real than reality itself."

Celebrated Italian novelist,
luiy's insight:

 

The possible world of narrative is the only universe in which we can be absolutely certain about something, and it gives us a very strong sense of truth. The credulous believe that El Dorado and Lemuria exist or existed somewhere or other, and skeptics are convinced that they never existed, but we all know that it is undeniably certain that Superman is Clark Kent and that Dr. Watson was never Nero Wolfe’s right-hand man, while it is equally certain that Anna Karenina died under a train and that she never married Prince Charming.

Visualization CrimeMap - #dataviz #maps

Visualization CrimeMap - #dataviz #maps | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
CrimeMap developed with ShinyApps from RStudio (RT @BigDataStartups: Visualization of the Week: CrimeMap #BigData http://t.co/rAwRSSmWjR)

Via AnalyticsInnovations
luiy's insight:

The big data visualization of the week comes to us from Jo-fai Chow, a research engineer and data geek from the UK. He uses the ShinyApps alpha release version to produce this delightful web app. ShinyApps.io is a new server which is currently in alpha testing to host Shiny applications based on R. You can play with the app HERE by just specifying a location like “Oxford” (only crime data from England, Wales & Northern Ireland is available at this time), and the number of months. The crime map is then rendered as shown below. You can fine tune the plot with a number of other parameters. For detailed usage information, check out Jo-fai’s blog post “Introducing CrimeMap – A Web App Powered by ShinyApps!”

How MIT Visualizes Supply Chain Risk | #SNA #predictive

How MIT Visualizes Supply Chain Risk | #SNA #predictive | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
MIT Supply Chain Management Director Bruce Arntzen discusses risk visualization and Sourcemap [Video]

 

How does a company keep tabs on thousands of suppliers? That’s the question Bruce Arntzen tried to answer when he started the Hi-Viz Research Project. As Executive Director of MIT’s Supply Chain Management Program, Arntzen works with corporations to find innovative solutions to supply chain problems. The idea for the Hi-Viz project came during a 2011 meeting of the Supply Chain Risk Leadership Council. A survey of attendees listed Supply Chain Visibility as the top concern. Why? With thousands of suppliers and sub-suppliers, it can be very time-consuming to find the weakest link in a supply chain. Arntzen’s solution: an automatic visualization of the end-to-end supply chain where the weakest links could be seen in real time. Watch his interview to learn how MIT and Sourcemap developed the first automated risk visualization [more details below the fold].

 

In 2015, the Hi-Viz project is partnering with actuarial data providers to provide predictive risk analytics. Sourcemap is making available inventory risk mapping as part of its enterprise software-as-a-service. Want to get involved? Learn more about the Hi-Viz project, or contact Sourcemap for a demo.

[This is a guest post by Jon Schwabish* and Severino Ribecca**, about the informational poster The Graphic Continuum]
 
 
How many different graph types exist? How do they relate to one another?
luiy's insight:

How many different graph types exist? How do they relate to one another? Can you use the same graphic type for different types of data? These are the questions that we tried to tackle in our recent project, The Graphic Continuum.

 

Documenting the many chart types is something we were both working on independently for the past couple of years. Severino was building his Data Visualisation Catalogue, an online reference tool of data visualizations. At the same time, I was teaching data visualization to different audiences and was thinking about how to best show my students different graphic types and how they relate to one another.

Publishing maps to the web. Simple right? Just reproject all your data to web mercator and be done with it. Have we all learned to live with the crazy distortion? Do we need mercator to help us...
luiy's insight:

D3.js is a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data. D3 helps you bring data to life using HTML, SVG and CSS. D3’s emphasis on web standards gives you the full capabilities of modern browsers without tying yourself to a proprietary framework, combining powerful visualization components and a data-driven approach to DOM manipulation.

An Interactive #Map Showing Global #Cyberattacks In Real Time | #dataviz | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Security firm Kaspersky Lab has launched an interactive cyberthreat map that visualizes cyber security incidents occurring worldwide in real time. A quick glance shows that the world is a pretty scary place.

luiy's insight:

The interactive map is a promotional tool created by Kaspersky Lab, but it's fascinating nonetheless. Threats displayed include malicious objects detected during on-access and on-demand scans, email and web antivirus detections, as well as objects identified by vulnerability and intrusion detection sub-systems.

Autopsie d’une #dataviz : des cartes #choroplèthes harmonisées

luiy's insight:

Je partage quelques réflexions à propos de trois cartes choroplèthes publiées récemment sur Rue89Strasbourg. Harmonisation des couleurs et opacité sont notamment au programme.

 

Quand j'ai écrit un article avec cartes et data sur les bastions droite/gauche aux dernières municipales de Strasbourg

 

, j'étais parti pour refaire ce que j'avais fait pour l'abstention

 

Par souci pratique, j'utilise Google Fusion Tables

 

 (GFT) pour héberger les données et les cartes directement sur le compte Google de Rue89Strasbourg.

 

Niveau carte choroplèthe

 

, on peut très facilement "harmoniser" les couleurs de sa carte, ou en utilisant des seaux ("buckets" dans le texte) ou en utilisant ce qu'on appelle des "gradients".

 

Les gradients font tout automatiquement : on dit juste en combien de pots on veut trier nos données, de la valeur minimale à la valeur maximale. GFT calcule tout tout seul et l'utilisateur peut changer la couleur des pots à sa guise, en respectant une palette préétablie ou non.

Timescape visualizes data in space, time and relationship I #dataviz #tools #ddj

Timescape visualizes data in space, time and relationship I #dataviz #tools #ddj | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
A new visualization platform, Timescape wants to extend the ways in which global organizations visualize narratives.
luiy's insight:

Data visualization is essentially an alternative way to tell a story. A new platform called Timescape aims to extend the ways in which we can visualize our stories by allowing organizations to sift through information on a map.

 

The result is a geo-temporal relationship map. That means, one can plot the events of, say, the Arab Spring as locations on a map and see how they relate to each other both in causation and in time. The ability to visually parse the data in these multiple ways illuminates alternative narratives surrounding those events, allowing people to see which events precipitated others and where they fit in with each other in space and time.

Web analytics In Real Time

Web analytics In Real Time | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Mankind loves making maps, and the world wide web, densely interconnected and phenomenally complex, always makes for a nice visual.

Typically these take the form of neon blobs floating against black backgrounds, like frames captured from old Winamp plug-ins, and while they’re always nice to look at, they don’t always do much in the way of helping us understand the massive global network we traverse every day. This latest effort, however, is a little different. Called simply Map of the Internet, it’s as informative as it is beautiful.


The map, which takes the form of a free app for Android and iOS, features 22,961 of the Internet’s biggest nodes--not individual websites, but the ISPs, universities, and other places that host them--joined by some 50,000 discrete connections. The app gives you two ways of surveying it all: geographically, on a globe, or by size, which rearranges the nodes into a loose column of points. Both views are interactive; instead of showing the Internet as a static neon blob, the app lets you explore the neon blob in the round, with all the familiar multitouch gestures. It may not look like the Google Maps app, but it instantly feels like it, which makes exploring the underbelly of the web all the easier...
