It was during the Soviet invasion of the 1970s and 80s that the Afghan government started losing control of its provinces. Under a weakened regime, warlords flourished and with it opium production began increasing rapidly as the tyrants looked for ways to fund their military existence.

This info graphic shows the immense threat of the Swine Flu compared to other manners of death. Today's the 300th day of the year 2009, so I used the numbers of deaths on the Poodwaddle's World Clock (which uses the death stats of the official WHO data and statistics) for a quick comparison. The number of swine flu deaths is from the official german epidemic info site. - click here to zoom image

 

All I wanna show is: keep your perspective and don't allow fear to short-circuit your reasoning.

My weekend project.

 

I kept thinking about how clichéd and pervasive (and fun) the periodic table framework has become, and I thought, "Hey, there's no periodic table of periodic tables." I Googled it and I was right. So I made one. Consider this v 1.0.

 

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 

March 24, 2010 update: Updated to v 1.1 to fix errors and optimize. The zoomable/clickable version at www.keaggy.com/periodictable is now fully operational, even if it's a bad way to use Flash.

 

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 

The big categories ended up being Foodstuffs, Beverages, Elements, Noble geeks, Communication, Design gases, Music series, Earth technologies, Awesomements, Objectments and the Undiscovered.

 

Dear chemists, dataviz geeks, wet blankets, etc: Please don't look for any true periodicity or science to the organization — it's just supposed to be a little bit fun and not a little bit sarcastic. There may be no end to the Internet, but this might just be the end of the misused periodic table.

My Flickr contacts as a solar system? Sort of. This is a Friend-of-a-friend type of visualization I created using data pulled via the Flickr API.

 

Full Size (2000x2000) Here!

 

The middle dot is me. The inner ring are my contacts. The outer ring are Flickr members who I do not count as a contact, but that my contacts count as a contact.

 

Size/color indicate how many contacts I share with that particular contact. What looks like a cool texture between all the dots are actually lines connecting everyone!

 

So, the big dots in red in the inner circle (eg: Mr_Darling, mosley brian, Aziz., etc) are folks that I share the most common contacts with. They also happen to be super cool people I enjoy sharing a beer with at local photography happy hours, and photographers whose photos I think are awesome. Not surprisingly, a lot of people I follow seem to follow The White House!

 

For this I used the "flickr.contacts.getPublicList" API method. I excluded 3 of my contacts from this since they were outliers, each having over 3k contacts (which messed the viz up!) - Sorry Rasidel, Sammy and Rose! The visualization was done with Gephi, using Vijesh Mohan's Concentric Layout plugin.

The covers from 570 issues of The Avengers, starting with issue #1, in September 1963. They are arranged in numerical order (note the strange issue #0 in the top left, published in 1999).

 

This image is really worth seeing in hi-res. Some of the covers are really spectacular, and some are downright ridiculous (The Avengers on the David Letterman show? Really?)

My reworking of the brilliant Land Art Generator images 'Suface Area Required To Power The World' with one alternative energy source added :)

 

Originals are here:

www.landartgenerator.org/blagi/archives/127

 

===========

 

here's my maths (probably wrong, please correct me if so)

  

total world energy needs per year:

198,721,800,000,000 kwH

 

average energy output of a human per hour

0.1 KW per human (100 watts)

 

365 days at 24 hours a day = 8760 energy hours per year per human

 

0.1 KW x 8760 hours = 876 KWh energy generated per human per year

 

world energy needs divided by human supply

 

198,721,800,000,000 / 876 = 226,851,369,863 humans required

 

Human body occupies

 

2m x 1m = 2square metres

 

assuming machinery and spacing between human batteries

 

4m x 2m = 8 square metres

 

requires

 

1, 814,810,958,904 metres for all human batteries

 

1.8 trillion square metres

 

or

 

18,148,810,958 = 18 billion square kilometres

 

world land surface area is:

 

148,940,000 square kilometres (wikipedia)

 

so would require 221 billion humans to be stacked 121 rows high across the entire land surface of the earth.

 

very dystopian!

Blue = *Friendly*, Green = *Host* Nation, Orange = Civilians, Grey = Enemies.

First one is function of sum, second one is function of time, or how you can dilute the media impact of a massacre by killing a few people each day for 6 years. Just remember that host nation + civilian + enemies = mostly Iraqis.

Only large, human, randomized placebo-controlled trials in our data scrape – wherever possible. No animal trials. No cell studies.

 

We looked at the abstracts of over 1500 studies on PubMed (run by US National Library Of Medicine) and Cochrane.org (which hosts meta-studies of scientific research). It took us several months to seek out the evidence – or lack of.

Near the end of the summer, I was asked by the publishers of Popular Science magazine to produce a visualization piece that explored the archive of their publication. PopSci has a history that spans almost 140 years, so I knew there would be plenty of material to draw from. Working with Mark Hansen, I ended up making a graphic that showed how different technical and cultural terms have come in and out of use in the magazine since it's inception.

Hope everybody had a good Christmas!

 

This hasn't come out as I was hoping for in my mind's eye, but nothing else to upload. I've done some 3D stuff of Derby before, but only the city centre. With my more powerful computer and some recent new open source OS data made available, I thought I'd do the entire city.

 

This uses a combination of 30m and 1m LIDAR data for the topography, but Derby is so flat you don't get much variation... all the bumps are too shallow to see. All a bit dull.

 

Every building is plotted (using OS zoomstack data) and there are 1.75 million tiny trees plotted in the areas described as 'woodland' by the OS.

If you look at the numbers, which canine comes out as top data-dog? Which are the best dog breeds according to the data?

I said I would try to work Blender out.... Blender is hard! It is also probably too much for my ageing PC. Many thanks to:

 

wanderingcartographer.wordpress.com/

 

For his tutorial on hill shading in Blender - from which I managed to bring in the NASA DEM data and a lake shapefile. After much trial and error with the camera (hard) and a few other things I managed to produce this... whether it was worth it or not is debatable but as its raining I can't mow the lawns, so go to be doing something! For relatively low resolution data, at least it is a recognisable place.

 

I intend to (try) and build up my skill set on this and use this image as a basis for building something altogether more realistic. Luckily there are few photos of this scene around to work out some inspiration! Got to start somewhere.
