State of the map 2011

This blog has been shamefully neglected for the whole summer, although I have been busy with some very interesting GIS related activities. I've just got back this week from a trip to Denver, where I have been attending two conferences; State of the Map 2011 (SOTM) and FOSS4G. I'll dedicate a post to each event, so let's start with SOTM, which is the annual meeting for people from around the world who contribute to, or who are interested in, Open Street Map (OSM).

Votos y cifras

Electioneering has started in Spain for municipal and regional elections which are to be held on May 22nd. To coincide with the campaign, Esri's Spanish office has put together an interesting map called Votos y Cifras (votes and figures) which combines different sources of data to map voting patterns by region against socio-economic data for each area.

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean your iPhone is not following you

One of my initial ideas for a post to inaugurate this blog was going to be something about how the use of smartphones equipped with GPS means that many users of these devices freely share important data about their movements. Then came the revelations concerning the iPhone apparently storing data about where the user had been in a file held on the phone itself.
