It’s time to start a #WWDC Wishlist Mega Thread. Here we go, will keep adding things until the event.
1. iOS 16: Add new languages in Apple Translate. I can hope for Indian languages, especially Hindi, but I think they have a long list before reaching there.
2. Wider rollout for Apple Pay, hopefully we get it in India as well. Indian market is quickly shifting towards Tap to Pay, and the government is encouraging digital payments more than any other country. Apple Pay would be a great addition.

THREAD on Maps on #Ukraine: Best Map Creator dragon_first_1 stopped yesterday bcs people in high places in #Russia "strongly advised" him so. Other good sources: @Suriyakmaps has live Google Map:…" width="640" height="480
VERY Fast is amazing @GeromanAT who has done great work since the #Syrian war. Even though i just reactivated my account after not using it for years, he seems to have worked since then tirelessly, compared to my lazy ass. Absolutely follow him for anything #MENA #Russia #Iran

Some thoughts on the #dataviz discussion on how to show refugee flows on #maps.

Form 1: Arrows *can* look like a war map – but I don’t think they have to. At @nzzvisuals we have used one kind of arrow to show invasion and another to show the flow of refugees.
Form 2: Bubbles or Figures placed in the destination country have been brought up as a possible solution. They make the map look less threatening, but they do negate that there is movement happening and that this is actually a forceful event – especially for the people fleeing.
A combination of arrows and bubbles might be a good solution, as @infowetrust points out here:

While I continue to hope for regime change in #Russia, I worry about what may come in the weeks ahead absent more Western military intervention. If it comes down to some form of a settlement, a #thread of #maps to contemplate in the days ahead / 1
First, #geopolitics of Russia. Southern and Eastern border protected by mountains. Ural mtns separate Moscow from inner lands. Hard to navigate Northern seas in the Artic. Historically, least protected on Western or S. Western border (Alexander the Great, Napoleon, Nazis) / 2
In thinking about historical Russian view of security on Western borders, consider a “line” from St. Petersburg to Rostov-on-Don during 4 periods: (1) the Russian empire in 1914 /3

🧵Sindh: Across its banks and beyond

Walk with Aishani Goswami & @rahul_tomar99 as they describe their 12 day walk along River Sindh

#MovingUpstream #Sindh @outofedenwalk (1/12)
@Indian_Rivers @IndiaRiverForum @yamunajiye @third_pole @indiawater @IYWN_…
Aishani and Rahul walked along the Sindh, as part of our #MovingUpstream fellowship program.

This map shows their journey route from Seondha to Narwar. It isn’t always a linear journey when walking along rivers.

Handmade maps are a great tool to prepare for field work. It really helps draw routes and locations into your memory.

Take a look at these hand drawn maps by Aishani Goswami, before going to the river.

My new map shows the population change (%) between 2017 and 2020, using Eurostat data

#population #Demography #depopulation #europe #RStats #maps #dataviz #gis Image
One pattern is visible for Central & Eastern European countries: apart from major towns the rest has a negative population growth
🇮🇹Italy has a negative population growth in nearly every corner of the country including Rome 😬

Now Out in Paperback! “#China Goes to #Sea: #Maritime Transformation in Comparative Historical Perspective”…

@NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime is proud to publish this new version w/ @NavalInstitute @USNIBooks!

Come for the #maps, stay for the #history...
Honored to have #JonathanSpence’s endorsement:

“The maritime #history of #China has long been a neglected field..China Goes to Sea bring[s] that knowledge-gap to an end..will be an indispensable companion to those readers seeking to understand where China’s navy may be heading.”
As European #naval powers & even the @USNavy struggle with ship numbers, #China has gone to #sea.

Represents the reversal of a great historical trend that began 600 years ago, when China withdrew from the seas & European naval expansion spread Western influence around the globe.

#Maps show #rainfall anomaly this year's monsoon (till August 16). Data: Satellite observation based Global Precip. Mission

Some parts of India (Odisha, Gujarat, West coast, NE India) have recorded lesser rainfall than the last 21 years

Few days of Aug & Sep still left for SWM
India Meteorological Department's map with ground observations look similar! Gujarat, Odisha, NE, West coast seem to be scoring lower numbers

Viz: #Kaveri river watershed 😍

I would be posting some #maps about the river with finer details in this thread in coming days! Bookmark.. Image
Data: SRTM
Software: QGIS
One of the biggest engineering works in Kaveri river is the Kallanai / Grand Anicut system. It was not constructed in 1 step & most of the structure that we see were erected during British era

A big hello and welcome to my new followers this week. With the current flurry around #THEGenealogyShow2021 it's been a busy time.

One of my favourite resources to use in #genealogy research is MAPS. So here's a little thread of #maps to get your weekend off to a good start... Extract from the first ordnance survey map in 1801, showing
The previous map (& here) is taken from the first ever Ordnance Survey (OS) map, produced in 1801 for the Kent.

And why Kent? The clue's in the name: ORDNANCE refers to artillery or weaponry; these maps were made with military defence in mind, just prior to the Napoleonic Wars. 1801 map extract showing Greenwich, at that time in Kent
Of course OS #maps are but a relatively recent development in the long history of mapping. Here's a copy of Morgan's famous 1682 map of London.
Beautiful - but not without its biases: prisons, WHs and signs of poverty were "judiciously" omitted from the final version... Morgan map of London from 1682

Some thoughts about #Apple's latest #WWDC21 and #privacy. A thread 👇
The good:

There's no question that Apple has brought some exciting new features for privacy lately. The possibility for users to block some #data collection, one's #email blocking trackers, the chance to use email aliases for interactions with companies...
#Safari hiding internet traffic from your internet service provider... all fantastic, and hugely important.

Apple is showing that #privacy is a competitive advantage. And their #security is much better than that of competitors

But before we get too complacent...
