Visual clutter remains a challenge in cartography, especially for web maps depicting voluminous, unfiltered collections of point type data. This issue is particularly prevalent in datasets generated in cities due to urban density. Professor Andrew Vande Moere and myself developed BinSq (abbreviated Bin2), a novel gridded dot density mapping technique to overcome this challenge. We demonstrate this technique on a large dataset of language referenced, geotagged tweets to reveal language communities in Brussels. The figure above compares our technique to the [a] standard dot map and six related solutions namely: [b] jittering, [c] refinement, [d] distortion with pixel map as well as [e] aggregation with categorical binning, [f] splatter plot and [g] dot density map. Our output is depicted in [h]. An implementation of BinSq in Java is avaliable on GitHub. Read our paper for a complete description of the technique.

Aujourd'hui, nous pleurons avec Bruxelles et toute la Belgique en face d'une autre horrible tragédie

Aujourd'hui, nous pleurons avec Bruxelles et toute la Belgique en face d'une autre horrible tragédie inexplicable. Mais demain, on ne pleurera pas encore, parce qu'il faut continuer: le temps se fuit et s'arrête pour rien. La Beauté et du Sens dans notre courte existence mondaine nous attendent, comme des enfants perdus dans le chaos, et ils comptent sur nous pour les retrouver.

the joy of radiators

Let me take you to Brussels in 1930 and the Stenos radiator company, which has just commissioned the Warnotte design studio to update its image.

They’ve done rather a good job, I think.
