      This is fantastic. I didn’t realize NYC offered open data, and I love how Offenhuber used it to create a heat map. Litter and noise complaints are part of our cultural heritage, right?

      I follow the MTA on twitter and today’s featured post visualize MTA ridership patterns. (http://tmblr.co/ZDwIbwjICcvQ)

      As NYC poises itself to be the next tech-orientated epicenter. These data sets will be a fun place for develops to begin transforming the landscape of both the city and the digital world. This is where culture heritage will be begin for our city as people learn form living data about the people who live here. This is just the beginning.

    Irish historical geological maps. 

    Although national geological surveys, dealing as they do with the natural world, do not set out to be instruments of cultural heritage (except perhaps where they overlap with the traces of human activity: cities, roads, and the like), the maps and other documents produced as artifacts in themselves are certainly cultural objects, some quite strikingly so.

    The geological survey organizations of England and Ireland have jointly created a web site to access digitized Irish geological maps, sections, and supporting documents created during the 19th century. The maps are beautiful and the accompanying “explanatory memoirs” are fascinating.
