CartoCiudad: Towards an inspired national thoroughfares network map

CartoCiudad is an official cartographic database of the Spanish cities and villages with their streets and roads networks topologically structured, with spatial continuity all over Spain. This project, launched in 2006, is the result of harmonization and integration of official digital cartography and information produced by the main suppliers of information about addresses and transports in Spain: Cadastre, Statistical Office, Post Office and the National Geographic Institute (hereafter IGN). Public organisations from several autonomous regions (Basque Country, Navarre, Valencia, Balearic Islands, La Rioja, Andalusia and Murcia) take part in this data flow as well, by means of inter-administrative collaboration agreements with IGN and according to their own competences in producing large scale cartography. Furthermore, collaboration with the rest of the autonomous regions is envisaged to decentralize the data maintenance and ensure the future sustainability of the project. This cooperation actions make CartoCiudad go towards the fulfilment of one of the most important principles of INSPIRE Directive: data is captured once, and exclusively by the competent organisation, then sharing the spatial information across the various levels of public authority and across different sectors.

The population of the internet, in one map

The population of the internet, in one map | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
This is a cartogram, a map in which the area of each country is proportional to its online population, based on 2011 data. So countries with large land areas but small populations — like Canada and Russia — appear shrunken, while dense, well-connected areas like South Korea and Belgium appear larger than life.
