Where people run

Where people run | Tourism : Maps - Beacons | Scoop.it

There are many exercise apps that allow you to keep track of your running, riding, and other activities. However, when we look at activity logs, whether they be our own, from our friends, or from a public timeline, the activities only appear individually.

 
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

Not only is it fun to see, but it can be useful to the data collectors to plan future workouts or even city planners who make sure citizens have proper bike lanes and running paths.

Cartographic Grounds: Projecting the Landscape Imaginary: Places: Design Observer

Cartographic Grounds: Projecting the Landscape Imaginary: Places: Design Observer | Tourism : Maps - Beacons | Scoop.it

The ascendance of “mapping” and data visualization in design culture has changed the way architects, landscape architects and urban designers communicate ideas about buildings and landscapes, often privileging abstract forces and flows over the material conditions of the site. This exhibit reimagines the projective potential of cartographic practices that afford greater proximity to the ground itself. The approaches presented here seek to reconcile the precision and instrumentality of the plan with the geographic and territorial scope of the map.

Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

We have an even greater challenge now, as our drawings are required to read at numerous scales, to be interactive, to make sense of big data, and to describe increasingly complex systems.

Endonym Map | Country Names in Their Local Languages

Endonym Map | Country Names in Their Local Languages | Tourism : Maps - Beacons | Scoop.it
An endonym is the name for a place, site or location in the language of the people who live there. This map depicts endonyms of the countries of the world in their official or national languages.
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

Antarctica?If penguins could speak, what would they call it?As politically-neutral territory, Antarctica does not have an endonym per se. However, among the territorial claimants, the majority of the continent is composed of English-speaking countries. English is also used as the lingua franca among various research stations.

Why Rome2Rio used photo heat maps to plot where to expand

Why Rome2Rio used photo heat maps to plot where to expand | Tourism : Maps - Beacons | Scoop.it
Rome2Rio, like many other companies, has identified new regions where it wants to improve its service... but the trigger has come from an unusual source.
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

“That’s not surprising; regions with developed transport infrastructure are also more likely to be visited and photographed. We have also focused on improving our coverage in popular tourist areas.” - See more at: http://www.tnooz.com/article/rome2rio-photo-heat-maps#sthash.qDsAaN8x.Ssi0NMDo.dpuf

Maps as an Instrument of Propaganda.

Maps as an Instrument of Propaganda. | Tourism : Maps - Beacons | Scoop.it
Maps are ideally supposed to be objective depictions of reality, but they can also be used as an instrument of propaganda, portraying the world not as it is but as it is imagined by the cartographer.
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

Other maps in this genre are inhabited by animals somehow associated with the country in question by the map creators. In some cases, such animals represent “psychological” stereotypes (as in the 1882 map on the left), while in other cases the association is symbolic or even purely linguistic.

The maps of the future will tell you what to see! (Wait, what's good about that?) | Tourism : Maps - Beacons | Scoop.it

Rob Walker:

The benefits of such technology are clear enough: We’ve all been in unfamiliar cities, judging restaurants by their awnings, wondering whether to push another block this way or that in hopes that something more promising(-looking) emerges. I'm sure I've ended up settling for restaurants that were not "No. 1-rated," more than once.

Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

The point being that sometimes the most interesting and important stuff in the world can’t be found on any map — no matter how technical-magical.
