Gaza-Israel crisis 2012: every verified incident mapped

Gaza-Israel crisis 2012: every verified incident mapped | Nuevas Geografías | Scoop.it

This map shows each verified incident of violence in Gaza and Israel since last week's assassination of Hamas leader Ahmed al-Jabari.  Geospatial technologies combined with social media are changing how we learn about (and wage) wars.

World Map as Seen Through a Drop of Water

Markus Reugels is a German photographer who specializes in capturing the art of water droplets.  The resulting images are so fantastic one might think that Photoshop or some other image manipulation software had a hand in creating them.

Mapping Earth's surface in 3D

The German satellite radar twins - TanDEM-X and TerraSAR-X - are a year through their quest to make the most precise, seamless map of varying height on Earth.

 

Geospatial technologies continue to make advances as well get to understand this world with increasing accuracy (shown above is a Digital Elevation Model of Iceland--turn head to the right and say 'oh').

Daniel Lindahl's curator insight, March 20, 2015 6:02 PM

In this BBC article, the author discusses the future of mapping. The use of DEM (digital elevation model) allows cartographers to map extremely tall mountains more precisely.  This same technology could some day allow cartographers to more accurately map the ocean's floor as well, the most unmapped area on Earth's surface.

Google Maps "Real-Time"

Google Maps "Real-Time" | Nuevas Geografías | Scoop.it

This doesn't exist, but as we image geospatial technologies of the future, this is a glimpse into what real-time satellite imagery streaming could potentially look like (I understand some of the technical hurdles, this is sci-fi). This still image is a sorry visual approximation for this dynamic visual rendering; follow the link for the video version of this imaged, futuristic landscape.

This future google maps “real-time” application will be very interesting because it will convenience for my thing however in the other side it will be a violation of private. Insurance companies could use it against you or for you defend, the same in the case of FBI or other state office or government Issues. Everyone will uncover and public to everyone. It is something to think about it.

While I don't think we are anywhere near the satellite coverage to mimic millions of video cameras simultaneously filming earth at high resolution, it is fun to imagine the possibilities. Yet it is also a big concern depending on who could potentially access this data.
