Close Up At A Distance
Mapping, Technology, and Politics
By Laura Kurgan
Poised at the intersection of art, architecture, activism, and geography, her analysis uncovers the implicit biases of the new views, the means of recording information they present, and the new spaces they have opened up.

“Visualizing NYC“ - a post on DensityDesign by @GiorgiaLupi:
During the next 6 months I have the honour to be hosted as a visiting researcher at the Parsons Institute for information Mapping in New York. Among the case studies I’m collecting (here) on spatial visualizations of geo-referenced data, in this post I selected the ones that analyse and depict several dynamics of New York cities.
The following projects are either interactive interfaces or static images, visualizing User Generated Data as well as other data sources able to enlighten some hidden dynamics of the city. A pdf of the projects above is downloadable from here, any suggestions on how to integrate this list with other relevant case studies is more than welcome!
