Mapping the 'Time Boundaries' of a City

Mapping the 'Time Boundaries' of a City | Mapas urbanos | Scoop.it
An EU-funded project is building platforms to detect patterns in how people use urban spaces.

 

Maps don't typically convey time very well. They're static snapshots of a moment in history. A handful of animated maps that do a good job combining time and space using either transit data or geo-tagged social-media hits.

Now a new project, called Geographies of Time, is trying to do something similar with a more typical two-dimensional map. The effort is part of a broader EU-funded projects called UrbanSensing that's building platforms to detect patterns in how people use urban spaces.

Giorgia Lupi, the Ph.D. researcher at Milan Politecnico behind the project, began with Milan. Using tens of thousands of geo-tagged tweets, she and colleagues divided the map of the city into a fine-grained grid. The tweets were then divided into eight three-hour time intervals (from midnight to 3 a.m., 3 a.m. to 6 a.m., etc.). And the boxes in the grid were digitally colored based on the time window when Twitter was locally most active.

Une représentation de la notion de densité et de réseau.

HG Académie de Rennes's curator insight, November 29, 2013 3:23 AM

Où se trouvaient les utilisateurs de Twitter quand ils envoyaient leur message ?
Cette carte numérique dynamique (Google Maps zoomable jusqu'à l'échelle locale) permet de faire ressortir les espaces à la fois densément peuplés (on repère les déserts humains "classiques", comme les concentrations urbaines majeures) et connectés aux réseaux (le Pakistan avec ses 180 millions d'habitants est quasi invisible).  La carte fait aussi ressortir les axes reliant ces différents pôles de densité (on imagine sans mal des Tweets envoyés dans les transports en commun, voire en voiture...).
Une bonne approche pour aborder les notions de mondialisation, d'urbanité, de densité, de développement, de réseaux, et bien d'autres encore

Una buena representación del cartógrafo francés "le-cartographe.net". Aunque también nos plantea muchas dudas. ¿Qué poder tiene una línea en el hielo?
