Visualizing Crime in Milan

January 12, 2011

A “dark” knowledge visualization example: the map of the crimes committed in Milan in 2010, visualized by a journalist, Daniele Belleri, in his blog. This image below is a zoom on the area where I used to live in Milan (near via Padova), as found on il Corriere della Sera.

The map provides insights: “Risultati anche inattesi: più crimini sugli assi dello shopping che in alcune periferie dalla fama negativa” (Unexpected results: more crimes on the shopping streets than in some peripheries with bad name). Indeed more crimes around Piazzale Loreto than in the Bovisa area!

Useful information for locals and travelers.
Thanks Alice for the hint!

Oh yea, now I remember why I live in Switzerland.

Swiss trains going visual

October 2, 2010

Swiss people are always efficient. Not to talk about Swiss trains, with their notorious punctuality and cleanness.

Now they are going one step further, employing useful visual representations  to decorate the train! Indeed they printed the map of the train  route on the tables, so passengers can entertain themselves looking at the map, learn about Swiss geography, and always know what are the next stops.

Switzerland is always ahead, so if they are using visuals on trains, I’m very confident this shows an upcoming trend!
