Digital Cartography [48]

New round up with 30 freshly released interactive maps

April 9, 2014

Ranging from Google’s Night Walk in Marseille, and NewScientist’s How the Upright Ape Conquered the World, to Kapersky’s new Cyberthreat real-time map, in addition to the usual selection of interactive maps from news outlets all over the world, this edition of Digital Cartography has a bit of everything.

The new season of Game Thrones, of course, motivated the creation of a couple of new projects, but other topics, such as environment, economy, sports and politics are present as well. Among these examples, we’d also like to call your attention to Zeit Online’s new custom maps – we talked about it in the latest Data Viz News. The new maps are completely custom branded design, seamlessly integrating into the website’s look and feel, and use German labels, all sourced through OpenStreetMap.

Now, here are the maps of the week:
