The bizarre mapping of ISIS

otford:

Our political maps should be based on reality. I have argued that at great length. This principle mostly concerns the failure to recognize when one government has lost control over a territory and another has taken control. But I have also said that control of land should only be shown in places…

NOAA’s new weather modelling uses a harsh and dramatic color ramp - so much so it overwhelms the data it attempts to portray—story seems to be ice vs. volcanos, evidently!

On the one hand, this ramp is definitely ill-suited for the dataset. On the other hand, it’s just so cool looking.



If this trend continues, we’ll  regret being angry at rainbows some day :)

People in Maryland love their Baltimore orioles — so much so that their major league baseball team bears the name of the migrating bird. Yet, by 2080, there may not be any orioles left in Maryland. They migrate each year and, according to a new report, could soon be forced to nest well north of the Mid-Atlantic state.

And the oriole is not alone. A seven-year study published Tuesday by the National Audubon Society warns that the migratory routes and habitats of more than half of the birds in North America are now or soon will be threatened by climate change.

This was fantastic:

"Louisiana Loses Its Boot: The boot-shaped state isn’t shaped like a boot anymore. That’s why we revised its iconic outline to reflect the truth about a sinking, disappearing place."

So I made these maps to see what the rest of the Gulf coast would like like without its “walkable” land.

Great long read on the shape of Louisiana and the relative truth of maps in general.

This is Alex Holden, the Milwaukee guy whose discovery of massive Russian identity theft is the lead story at the New York Times.
Given this photo running with the NYT story, it would appear that his firm operates with lean PR and office furniture budgets.
