Digital Cartography [59]

The latest interactive cartography projects, plus the World Cup maps of the week

Welcome to another edition of ‘Digital Cartography’, our weekly column dedicated to interactive maps. And what a selection we have for you today!

Besides the projects around 2014 World Cup, this list of 20+ freshly released interactive maps includes the new OECD Regional Well-Being exploratory tool, the beautiful DataShine Census, spotted over at Google Maps Mania, the New York Primary results map and the MillionTrees NYC: Mortality Rate project, both courtesy of WNYC.

Our opening pick, however, goes to yet another project – not a map, but a research project, called Visits. Developed by Alice Thudt, Dominikus Baur, and Sheelagh Carpendale from the University of Calgary, Visits is an exploration of your personal location history, using geo-tagged Flickr albums, data from Openpaths and Google Location Histories. An interesting idea, where, as Nathan Yau puts it, “the focus is less on analytics and numbers and more on helping you remember where you’ve been”.

Hope you enjoy the picks of the week:
