Little visualization projects to change the world.
Tinkurlab:Maps hopes to merge our "internet-of-things" projects with spatial technology.
Data leads to information. Information leads to knowledge. OPEN data leads to transparency. Whether it's through hardware instrumentation or open data resources, our goal is to create mashups that inform.
Dashboards. Line graphs. Dials. These only get you so far. Tinkurlab:Maps will look at how we can incorporate spatial data into different visualization techniques. Geographic maps are only part of the equation.
Tinkurlab started out in hardware. The process of real-world instrumentation has led us to some pretty cool projects. Can we combine hardware and spatial data? Challenge accepted.
Want to compare runs between resorts? Would that black diamond at your local hill really be a green out west? Check out Tinkurlab:SlopeStyle to find out!
Using open source GIS software, USGS data, OpenStreetMap and Mapbox, we've developed an app that displays the slope pitch of your favorite ski runs.
