This visualization shows how fast you're spinning around Earth's axis

This visualization shows how fast you're spinning around Earth's axis | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | Scoop.it

"Ever wonder how fast you're spinning around the imaginary rod connecting the North and South Poles? Wonder no more. By finding your location on this map and searching for where your line of latitude intersects with the bold, black curve, you can determine the speed at which you're currently zipping around Earth's axis. 

 

"I was initially going to make the graphic for Mars," planetary geologist Seth Kadish tells io9, " but people always enjoy a data visualization more when they can relate it to themselves. As no one lives on Mars (yet), I opted to use the Earth.""

 

from source: http://io9.com/h -

ghbrett's insight:

This is an interesting article. I did follow the link for the Trigonometric  Diagram and after scrolling down that page  I found that Washington DC, USA (near me) at 38 deg Lat is spinning about 818 mile per hour or roughly 2,925.79 kilometers per hour. Whew. Have a look, the article also points to planetary geologist Seth Kadish's site, Vizual Statistix with even more visualizations - http://vizual-statistix.tumblr.com/   Enjoy!!-

Writing Live Fieldnotes: Towards a More Open Ethnography

Writing Live Fieldnotes: Towards a More Open Ethnography | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | Scoop.it

I just returned from fieldwork in China. I’m excited to share a new way I’ve been writing ethnographic fieldnotes, called live fieldnoting. I spoke about live fieldnoting in a recent interview with Fast Company that also featured a slideshow of my live fieldnotes. I want to elaborate on the process in this post.


At one point in time, all ethnographers wrote their notes down with a physical pen and paper. But with mobiles, laptops, iPads, and digital pens, not all ethnographers write their fieldnotes. Some type their fieldnotes. Or some do both. With all these options, I have struggled to come up with the perfect fieldnote system." - http://ethnographymatters.net/

ghbrett's insight:

While this report was developed for Federal Agencies it should prove useful background or introduction for others to using visualizations linking data geographically & visusally through tools like Google Maps.
