The Monthly with All That Geo – July 2021

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

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

  • In The Spotlight – I’ll introduce you 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 valuable tips to make your mapping and data visualisation journey easier.
  • Tales of All That Geo – the first webcomic on the intersection of Geography, GIS and Women in Tech, drawing on my lived experience and stories others have shared with me.

In The Spotlight

CARTO and the empowering user experience
There is something empowering about a tool that does not require a lot of training and fiddling around to produce an impactful result.

Geo For Good

The time has come to talk about ethics in location data
Locus Charter highlights ten founding principles addressing common concerns and advocating for the ethical and responsible use of location data.

Frenchy's Tip*

*This section is named after my dog Frenchy. He’s a retired racing greyhound from Australia, living it up in Portugal.

OpenStreetMaps is better with overpass turbo
Overpass turbo is a web-based data filtering tool that allows the export of data, maps and queries from OpenStreetMaps.

Databases: webcomic on spreadsheets as corporate databases
