The Monthly with All That Geo – October 2021

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

Welcome back to the October issue of The Monthly with All That Geo by me, Cristina! Every month, I'll be bringing you a four-part newsletter focused on the learning of mapping and data visualisation skills:

  • In The Spotlight – data visualisation tools I have personally explored and reviewed.
  • Geo For Good – inspiring organisations and projects enabled by location data.
  • Frenchy's Tip – valuable tips that will 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

Flourish your data visualisations!
Flourish is exciting in many ways. Think of Chart Studio and Datawrapper, but with more options for those who work with location data.

Geo for Good

CartONG and the humanitarian cartography
CartONG is a French Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) specialising in Information Management.

Frenchy's Tip*

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

Open data portals of the world
Nicolas Holm created an app listing the open data portals of the world. This app will help you find data sources across jurisdictions.

Tales of All That Geo

SHP isn’t a shapefile: webcomic on shapefiles’ related files
Tales of All That Geo is a webcomic at the intersection of Geography, GIS and Women in Tech. This one’s on shapefiles’ related files.
