UUorld – mapping data in four dimensions


This is a lot of fun, and apparently a little educational. UUorld takes data, overlays it on a map, and lets you rotate, zoom, and watch the data unfold over time:

UUorld (pronounced “world”) provides an immersive mapping environment, high-quality data, and critical analysis tools.

Great explanations are unfortunately scarce, but UUorld makes them easier to achieve through interactive four-dimensional maps. Our solution has three simple parts:

  • Draw on extensive, organized data.
  • Explore and grasp complex patterns through intuitive visual analytics.
  • Deliver new insight with compelling images and video.

We think you’ll find four-dimensional mapping delivers results because the medium exposes the spatial and temporal context inherent to nearly all data.

It’s available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Explain the world with maps. – UUorld [via Gnat on O’Reilly Radar]

I'm a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I'm not tinkering, I'm probably editing a book for Maker Media.
