Données Urbaines 7

Just published:

URBAN DATA 7 (Données Urbaines)

Decrypting new diverse and massive urban data, this book shows how cities, their governments their inhabitants, their businesses , adapt deeply to all these transformations. The book is divided into six main chapters, each grouping of items within the reach of the great public by experts on urban policies, urban life, space and social structures, the economy, the functioning of cities in systems and the urban environment. The continuity of these themes with previous volumes in the series can measure the importance of the transformations that highlight how adaptation to change is more than ever the driving force for dynamics cities. Teachers, students, policy makers, urban practitioners and ordinary citizens will find keys to understanding these developments and knowingly take part in.

An incredible map of which countries e-mail each other, and why?

The Internet was supposed to let us bridge continents and cultures like never before. But after analyzing more than 10 million e-mails from Yahoo! mail, a team of computer researchers noticed an interesting phenomenon: E-mails tend to flow much more frequently between countries with certain economic and cultural similarities.

see the paper in Washington Post

ORBIS: the Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World

The system calculates the distance from a city to another one, according to faster path, or lower cost.

http://orbis.stanford.edu/

Go to “Mapping ORBIS”, It draws the path and create many different maps and graphs (in “Map gallery”). It’s a pity that the Emperors did not have this system 🙂

ART AND GEOGRAPHY

Three years ago, a friend of mine who is a genius artist (Catherine Bolle), asked me to do geography on her biography. She told me many things about her life, during some few sundays afternoon in the Beaurivage Hotel in front of the lake in Lausanne. It took one year to build the data and think about the pictures to produce. Then to build them and interpret with a nice text.
