As a human geography grad, I make maps to present data in a compelling manner. I use the programs ArcGIS, Quantum GIS, and Tile Mill.
World Population Density
For this map, I show the population density of countries and represent the data through different shades. As you can see, countries with the darker shade of pink have denser populations. I used the software ArcGIS for this map.
Bike Lanes Connected to Public Spaces in Vancouver
This is a map showcasing bike lanes in Vancouver and the public spaces they’re connected to. I created this one using the program Tile Mill. Data is collected from the City of Vancouver in 2009. Click here (or the picture) for the actual interactive link. Watch the zoom keys. Hover over the lanes for their names.
