Cartography comparison: Google Maps & Apple Maps

Thu, Jun 9, 2016|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , , , |Comments Off on Cartography comparison: Google Maps & Apple Maps

From Justin O'Berne: Both are the default mapping apps on their respective operating systems (Android and iOS). And both are in a race to become the world’s first Universal Map — that is, the first map used by a majority of the global population. In many ways, this makes Google Maps & Apple Maps two of the most important maps ever made.

Who will get there first? And will design be a factor? · Go to Cartography comparison: Google Maps & Apple Maps →

Why your brain loves infographics (and your readers do too)

Sat, May 2, 2015|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , |Comments Off on Why your brain loves infographics (and your readers do too)

From contently: There are solid scientific reasons why we love infographics, and it all comes down to our brains. Visualized information as a whole has increased over 9,000 percent since 2007. It makes sense: The visuals help cut through the information overload we get from carrying humanity’s collected knowledge (and a ton of cat pictures) in our pockets. In fact, as the chart shows, we’re receiving about five times as much information now as we did in 1986. Images help us drill past this noise since it takes minimal time to understand a visual—only 1/10th of a second to be exact.

Visuals are also a great way to communicate with your readers, since they increase the willingness to read in the first place. That information will also have staying power, since they’ve been shown to help with reader comprehension. · Go to Why your brain loves infographics (and your readers do too) →

How NASA stays beautiful

From Fast Company: NASA has a better grasp of design than any other government agency. The U.S. space agency has several teams devoted solely to data visualization and graphics, and its materials have a consistent design language that’s pretty much the best compared with any other arm of federal bureaucracy. · Go to How NASA stays beautiful →

Ivan Specht started out making subway maps for his Dad. His first, covering Austin, Texas, was a Father's Day gift. It went from there. He set up a website, called Metro-Ology, started printing posters and T-shirts, and developed 10 more maps for other cities such as San Antonio and New Orleans. They're all completely fictitious. · Go to Metro-Ology →
