The Monthly with All That Geo – February 2021
The Monthly with All That Geo

Welcome to the second issue of The Monthly with All That Geo! Each month, I will bring you a three-part newsletter focused on the learning of mapping and data visualisation skills:

  • In The Spotlight – you’ll be introduced to data visualisation tools I have personally explored and reviewed.
  • Geo For Good – you’ll discover inspiring organisations and projects enabled by location data.
  • Frenchy’s Tip – you’ll get helpful tips to make your mapping and data visualisation journey easier.

In The Spotlight

Knight Lab’s StoryMap as an alternative to ArcGIS StoryMaps
StoryMap from Knight Lab is straightforward to use and can be a starting point for beginners.

Geo For Good

The Audacious Project: mapping places and communities
The Audacious Project from the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) supports local communities so that vulnerable areas are put on the map.

Frenchy's Tip*

*This section is named after my dog Frenchy. He’s a retired racing greyhound from Australia.

Help! Which colours for my data visualisations?
Have you ever hesitated about which colours to use in data visualisation? Find the most common mistakes and how to avoid them.

You are more than welcome to write back! Just reply to this email and share your thoughts and suggestions on any part of this newsletter. I read every reply.

Finally, I hope you get the most value out of this newsletter. If you think this newsletter might interest someone you know, by all means, suggest a visit to www.allthatgeo.com.

That’s all for now. See you next month!

Take care and keep learning,
