DataShine: the Census 2011, mapped with context for England/Wales.
LIGIT UAB's insight:
La plataforma de cartografia DataShine ha estat desenvolupat dins del projecte "Big Open Data: Mining and Synthesis", realitzat per ESRC Future Research Leaders Project.
El projecte global té per objectiu promoure i desenvolupar l'ús de grans col·leccions de dades obertes entre la comunitat de les ciències socials, sent una tasca clau facilitar la seva visualització a través de nous mitjans que inspirin i generin nous usos i idees.
Com a resultat d'una primera fase s'ha creat DataShine, una plataforma de mapes online que mostra dades del cens 2011 d'Anglaterra i Gal·les. Us animen a accedir a la plataforma
Cancer is often considered a disease of affluence, but about 70% of cancer deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. Explore this interactive map to learn about some cancers that disproportionately affect poorer countries.
With this interactive map, users can explore cancers that disproportionately affect poorer countries. How do these spatial distributions correlate with other developmental, consumption or economic patterns? What surpises you about this data?
An OverlapMap is a map of one part of the world that overlaps a different part of the world. OverlapMaps show relative size.
The above overlap map is the United Kingdom compared to the state of Pennsylvania. This is an very simple way to demonstrate the true size of remote places, and 'bring the discussion home.' This site is as simple and intuitive as it is powerful and easily applicable. This is a keeper.
PELAGIOS stands for 'Pelagios: Enable Linked Ancient Geodata In Open Systems' - its aim is to help introduce Linked Open Data goodness into online resources that refer to places in the historic past.
Pelagios is a collective of projects connected by a shared vision of a world - most eloquently described in Tom Elliott’s article ‘Digital Geography and Classics’ - in which the geography of the past is every bit as interconnected, interactive and interesting as the present.

Interessant projecte internacional que cerca la unió dels indrets del nostre passat a través dels documents històrics que en fan referencia.
Na internet encontramos uma ampla lista de serviços de mapas online. O mais popular deles, o que não significa que seja o mais confiável, é o Google Maps. Você sabia que existem ferramentas web, gratuitas, que nos permitem realizar comparações entre as diferentes plataformas? Isso pode ser de grande valia como ferramenta para fins educacionais ou como uma opção de pesquisa pessoal.

I love National Geographic’s MapMaker Kit as a great way to have students produce their own oversized Mega Maps (8 rows of 17 columns), especially if you only have access to a printer that p...
Here are 6 lessons and activities designed around National Geographic’s Mega Maps and Tabletop Maps that can be printed with ordinary 8.5 x11 sheets of paper. This is a perfect way to celebrate and get ready for the upcoming Geography Awareness Week (Nov . 11-17).

This is another old classic image that I might have shared earlier but it merits repeating. As Salvatore Natoli (a leader in geography education) once said, "In our society we unconsciously equate size with importance and even power." This is one reason why many people have underestimated the true size of Africa relative to places that they view as more important or more powerful.
In geography, the antipodes of any place on Earth is its antipodal point; that is, the region on the Earth's surface which is diametrically opposite t...
I know that most Americans have learned at an early age that if you dig a hole through the center of the Earth, you'll end up in China. Geologic and impossibilities aside, most Americans would actually end up in the Indian Ocean as displayed by this clever pairing up maps that shows the user the Antipode of any given place on Earth.
