Here's Every Meteorite Fall on Earth in a Single Interactive Visualization

Here's Every Meteorite Fall on Earth in a Single Interactive Visualization | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

Ever wonder how many meteors have hit Earth? The Meteoritical Society is doing its best to keep track. And Javier de la Torre, co-founder of CartoDB, is helping us see the pure volume of hits (into the tens of thousands). His interactive visualization shows a heatmap of hits all over the world, letting you explore where and when meteorites fell, as well as their size and classification.

I wonder how much of this is biased by the lack of reporting (or over reporting) in some areas.

Example of data scientist faux pas:  Meteors choose to fall so unevenly...!

Visualizing 100 Years Of Climate Data

Visualizing 100 Years Of Climate Data | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

What does 100 years worth of climate data look like when rendered in an interactive, color-coded map? A continental tug-of-war between red (for heat) and blue (for cold), as seasons come and go and cold air replaces the warm.

The infographic is the work of data visualization studio Halftone, whose principals originally pursued the idea of making a map to visualize data about coffee production against key environmental factors, like temperature and precipitation.


"Our goal with this project was not to facilitate precise analysis, but to expose how every single month produces a unique and beautiful artwork through our Voronoi tessellated approximation of a heat map," write the creators. "The underlying map of satellite imagery and major geographic features adds a second layer for exploration."

7 Shocking Google Earth GIFs of Human Impact on Earth

7 Shocking Google Earth GIFs of Human Impact on Earth | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

There’s no doubt about it, humans have reshaped the earth more in the last two hundred years than at any other time in our history… and the last 25 years are no different. 


Google has released a new “interactive map experience” allowing users to view archived satellite data over the last quarter century, giving us perhaps the most clear and valuable view of our recent impact on earth.

At least, the concern about equality, energy and social welfare is there. I like the last one about engineers tho. Hahaha.

I think this article is awesome because they use data visualization to show what people share the most, visit the most, and search the most. Data is everywhere and people are using it everyday and sometimes don't even think about it.

NOAA's new interactive map shows all the vegetation on the planet

NOAA's new interactive map shows all the vegetation on the planet | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

Thanks to the NASA/NOAA Suomi NPP satellite, NOAA has put together an incredible interactive map of the world's greenery, we can now see to an amazing degree of detail which parts of the planet is covered in green and which are bare.

The map is thanks to the ability of the satellite to collect 2 TB of data every week -- and that's only the portion of data collected for the vegetation index...

I'm hoping we'll see seasonal changes too! Great potential for looking at conservation issues, biodiversity, urban encroachment etc

It is a lot greener than you would think considering all the slash and burn hype the media puts out.
