Easy D3 Data Visualizations using Raw: Visualizing Student Debt by State and Year
 
11:22
This tutorial describes a simple way to create stunning data visualizations from the D3.js library using Raw, an online tool. Raw allows you to upload your own datasets and visualize them as a treemap, bubble chart, alluvial diagram, dendogram or circular dendogram, circle packing plot or a binned scatterplot. In this example we use data representing student debt by state and year, and create a data visualization representing the top ten states for 2012 according to data from College Insight. Sample datasets are also included in Raw if you don't have one readily accessible to use.

Mobile Phone Tracking and You: Loading location data from your cell phone in Google Maps and ArcMap
 
13:52
This GIS tutorial walks through how to get location data from your cell phone as represented in Google Maps into ArcMap. This tutorial covers the basics of using the KML to Layer tool in the ArcToolBox and an alternate way to load kml data back into ArcMap. I've included a "cleaned" version of the KML file below if you'd like to try and pull the file into ArcGIS yourself. If you do, see if you can figure out the following: 1. Where I stayed on 08/17/2013 2. What I did during the day 3. Where I went in the evening The timestamps will be helpful in making an educated guess. Remember, the data you're working with hasn't been cleaned so there will be errors in the file. When working with the data, think a bit about what this data can tell someone when combined in aggregate over a period of time (even just a week's worth of data can be very informative as to a person's behavioral patterns). From a public health perspective, the monitoring of such information can introduce significant ethical issues for the researcher. For instance, a public health official might be tempted to use such a data collection scheme to try and determine segments of the population most likely to visit clinic locations, but what if that same information was used to target specific populations (say, persons who all happen to visit a place of worship?) Public health officials are more likely to be very sensitive to such issues, but others may not. If you are a public health practitioner (or are in school to become one), consider it part of your duty to inform others as to the challenges that location-based information can introduce to both the research and the general public. A copy of the cleaned CSV file used in the tutorial can be found here: http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=07afb38edab347c4ba7d1758f11f0c08 For more on this topic, see: maps.google.com/locationhistory support.google.com/gmm/answer/3118687?hl=en resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//00120000004w000000 Presentation on similar topic: http://169.226.136.224/mediasite/Viewer/?peid=9ab7e706a4424f40b57f19f9ca0a5cab1d

Urban Climate Project - Climate Change Resources - Esri Climate Resilience App Challenge 2014
 
15:39
For practicing planners, the Urban Climate Project is intended to function as a decision support tool, where cities of similar size, climatic characteristics, development trajectories, or demographic composition can easily locate successful (or unsuccessful) approaches to both mitigation and adaption strategies. For researchers, Open Climate provides access to a curated list of primary and secondary data sets, scientific reports, and analytic tools. It also provides a forum to connect leading ideas with those who can take action through policy and intervention. http://geodesign.newschool.edu/c40cities/ http://gis.newschool.edu This site is a collaboration between Aalborg University, PIIM, the Parsons The New School for Design, and the Urban Climate Change Research Network.
