Digital Cartography [36]

Bringing you the latest interactive maps from around the Internet

January 15, 2014  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

For this edition of Digital Cartography, we’d like to leave a shout-out to a couple of projects, that are actually the first three picks of this post.

First, the updated Mapping the Scientific Excellence, a web application that visualizes scientific excellence worldwide in 17 subject areas. You can read all about this project here, in great detail.

After that, The Refugee Project by Hyperakt and Ekene Ijeoma, an interactive visualization about migrations over time, based on United Nations data. And the other project that came to our attention – among the several we’ve picked – is Empire.is, a map showing the location of United States military installations, not only in the US but around the world. This one was seen on Google Maps Mania, a non-stop stream of Google Maps related articles.

Here’s the full list of selected interactive maps:
