Computer scientists and cartographers have now associated thousands of street names with corresponding Wikipedia pages and have data mined these pages to investigate cultural phenomena reflected in naming streets after historical figures."

What 3 Words? Jog on mate!

The OpenAddresses.io website notes that "Address data is essential infrastructure". Geography underpins so much of the data we collect and is collected about us, making address registers important parts of national data infrastructure.

Atlas for the End of the World

"Coming almost 450 years after the world's first Atlas, this Atlas for the End of the World audits the status of land use and urbanization in the most critically endangered bioregions on Earth. It does so, firstly, by measuring the quantity of protected area across the world's 36 biodiversity hotspots in comparison to United Nation's 2020 targets; and secondly, by identifying where future urban growth in these territories is on a collision course with endangered species. By bringing urbanization and conservation together in the same study, the essays, maps, data, and artwork in this Atlas lay essential groundwork for the future planning and design of hotspot cities and regions as interdependent ecological and economic systems."
