Risk exposure. Geoprocessing using Open Source Data!! Next steps!!

Now that we have completed a first example, let’s continue with a real-world one. Its important working on a Data Model to define what we understand as a Risk and how important this is. Meaning. High voltage power lines are an actual risk but the closer we are, i guess the bigger the risk is, meaning i.e 3 if we are within 50m and 1 if we are 150m away… It’s only a guess.

Comparing France Meteo and Spain Meteo from the visualization point of view

After living in France for four years i have to tell i am always aware of Meteo information on TV (well, i live in Brittany, i guess this makes sense!).

La geografía española (con minúsculas)

Aquí la ‘convesación’ via twitter con el presentador de TVE Jacob Petrus. Me quejé de que se mencionara dentro de una frase, como tantas veces hemos oído, en radio y televisión, la expresión ‘La geografía española…’ refiriéndose a España en general. Lo que me indignó fue que Jacob Petrus es Geógrafo además de presentador generalistaContinue reading “La geografía española (con minúsculas)”

PISA report SPAIN 2012 by Comunidades Autónomas Trends North-South and West-East

I wanted to take advantage of the latest ‘advanced course on Statistical Analysis’ followed in the spanish IGN and show you how North-South and West-East trends impact on this report. As you can see, the higher the values, the most likely to be in the North and the East of the country.

Cool data. What is this?

What is this ‘cool data‘ all about?. When i got my degree in Geography (about 15 years ago) it didn’t make sense at all being interested in something like graphic design, photography, video and all this stuff… but not only interested in my leisure time but also for taking advantage of it, getting a lifeContinue reading “Cool data. What is this?”

Team building when ‘in remote’

Almost three years now working in remote and every time more i realize how important team building is when you’re not working alongside the rest of the team, not joining annual meetings and when the number of visits to the HQ is reduced to the minimum expression… First of all i wonder what can i do onContinue reading “Team building when ‘in remote’”

Solar + Shadows analysis on Rue Massillon, Nantes (France)

This is the beautiful building in from of my house in Nantes… Let’s model it first using Sketchup. Also i have used a non standard style only for visualization purposes… If we have the North behind us this means we are going to have a lot of light… but so far we are just guessing… Now weContinue reading “Solar + Shadows analysis on Rue Massillon, Nantes (France)”
