e-Atlas of Global Development

The World Bank today launched the e-Atlas of Global Development, a free, online, interactive tool, which maps and graphs more than 175 indicators from the World Bank’s development database.

Development of the e-Atlas of Global Development allows users to easily and quickly map and chart economic and social indicators and compare country outcomes. Users can export customized, professional quality, full color maps and graphs. Other features include scalable maps, timeline graphing, ranking tables, and import and export functions for sharing data and graphics. Critical issues such as poverty, food production, population growth, climate change, international trade, and foreign direct investment are covered.

Earth's Gravity Revealed

Above image looks like a giant potato, but it is actually our Earth. After just two years in orbit, European Space Agency's GOCE (Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer) satellite has gathered enough data to map Earth's gravity with unrivalled precision. Scientists now have access to the most accurate model of the 'geoid' ever produced to further our understanding of how Earth works.

A precise model of Earth's geoid is crucial for deriving accurate measurements of ocean circulation, sea-level change and terrestrial ice dynamics. The geoid is also used as a reference surface from which to map the topographical features on the planet. In addition, a better understanding of variations in the gravity field will lead to a deeper understanding of Earth's interior, such as the physics and dynamics associated with volcanic activity and earthquakes.

Method of Tracking a Foods Expiration Date

Design studio To-Genkyo proposes a new method of tracking a foods expiration date by using a universally recognizable visual. The new design keeps people honest by changing colours based on the level of ammonia the food emits as it ages. After it has passed its expiration date the bar-code is no longer readable, making it impossible to sell.

Love and Hate on Twitter

This visualization made of collecting tweets containing the words 'love' and 'hate' for a couple of years. It is a fun project  done by Jeff Clark from Canada, that he finished just in time for Valentine's Day.

Happy Valentine's Day

The State of Wikipedia

Leading data visualization firm JESS3 produced the video. "To be able to educate people about how and why Wikipedia works was the challenge"

The State of Wikipedia not only explores the rich history and inner-workings of the web-based encyclopedia, but it's also a celebration of its 10th anniversary. With more than 17 million articles in over 270 languages, Wikipedia has undoubtedly become one of the most visited and relied upon sites on the web today.

Visualizing 10 Million Facebook Friendships

When the data is the social graph of 500 million people, there are a lot of lenses through which you can view it. One that piqued Facebook intern Paul Butler curiosity was the locality of friendship. He was interested in seeing how geography and political borders affected where people lived relative to their friends. He wanted a visualization that would show which cities had a lot of friendships between them.

He began by taking a sample of about ten million (about 2%) pairs of friends from Apache Hive, Facebook's data warehouse. He combined that data with each user's current city and summed the number of friends between each pair of cities. Then he merged the data with the longitude and latitude of each city.
