The Evolution of the Web - Google Chrome [Infograph]

The Evolution of the Web - Google Chrome [Infograph] | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

   Interactive infographic about the evolution of browsers and the web.

   The web today is a growing universe of interlinked web pages and web apps, teeming with videos, photos, and interactive content. What the average user doesn't see is the interplay of web technologies and browsers that makes all this possible.

   Over time web technologies have evolved to give web developers the ability to create new generations of useful and immersive web experiences. Today's web is a result of the ongoing efforts of an open web community that helps define these web technologies, like HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL and ensure that they're supported in all web browsers.

A Map of Global Population Density - @infosthetics

A Map of Global Population Density - @infosthetics | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

The map consists of a collection of geo-located circles of varying size and hue value. Maybe counter-intuitively, larger, darker circles show areas with fewer people, while smaller, brighter circles highlight crowded cities.

Are Our Transit Maps Tricking Us? - @JessicaGross

Are Our Transit Maps Tricking Us? - @JessicaGross | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

   Subway maps distort the reality on the ground for all kinds of reasons. In order to play to our cognitive capacities and honor basic rules, there’s no choice but to distort maps. The thing is, we humans are always using heuristics to make decisions, public transit choices included.

   Everyone might know a map "works," but we don’t necessarily know how it's working on us. When we plan out a route, we consider tons of factors: distance, travel time, number of transfers, walking time, waiting time, direction, reliability, level of crowding, operating hours, cost, seat availability, aesthetics, and more. So what happens when we make decisions based on inaccurate maps?

  In the end it might be attractive to distort the maps a little bit further, in order to change the User Experience and Behavior. It might be cheaper to change peoples brain than their so called reality  .. (p(re))framing their lives ..
