Digital Cartography [50]

Showcase of interactive maps published around the world

April 23, 2014

Since 2000, the Internet has become the main organizing tool of the #Earth Day events, celebrated all over the world every year, on April 22. Yesterday wasn’t different, and our first pick of this Digital Cartography goes to an interactive map that could be seen as a perfect illustration of the digital engagement around this special date.

This interactive map by Simon Rogers shows the geotagged Twitter conversation about Earth Day 2014, similar to what we’ve seen in other recent examples that Simon has been producing, since he joined Twitter as the Data Editor. We mentioned not so long ago the new CartoDBPublic Pages, and Simon’s definitely one to bookmark and check on a regular basis.

And here are the maps of the week:
