Schöne Grafik mit kleinen Detail-Ansichten der National Geographic.
There is a multitude of internationally-agreed environmental goals and objectives, which are part of outcome documents of relevant United Nations summits and conferences, resolutions of the General Assembly, decisions of other global intergovernmental conferences, multilateral environmental agreements and decisions of their governing bodies. The compendium of those goals and objectives is called the Global Environmental Goals (GEGs).
The purpose of the GEGs-Live website is to provide up-to-date information on the progress towards achieving these GEGs. In addition, it puts the information into the context of the currently elaborated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The variables and data are mainly drawn from UNEP’s Environmental Data Explorer.
Users can access the information they are searching for either through the GEGs or the SDGs, as parallel points of entry. Based on the user’s choice, the website shows the direct interlinkages between politically-agreed goals and targets on the one hand, and relevant underlying data for monitoring these on the other.
This website is a value judgment-free effort by UNEP to provide up-to-date information to show progress achieved on issues identified in the GEGs and the currently elaborated SDGs. It is intended to better inform both decision-makers and the general public.
Very interesting website. For once, for the report (N. Stern is the key person behind). But even more for the website design. It’s like an interactive ebook brought online, with video which can play (fullscreen) in the background, links in all directions, pages which just need to be scrolled down for overview, and to the left for deeper look into it…
Pretty cool… Although, still, I don’t read the stuff, as I don’t like reading text on screen…
Interesting, very interactive site of automatic information collection/harvesting on specific environmental topics or keywords. The engine behind runs through all major social platforms and collects information and puts it into the right perspective, respectively inserts it into its larger database for connecting the dots (that is, the environmental themes, keywords, products).
Nice example of an attractive and both visual and textual display of indicators.
Nice way of showing how much time and effort goes when into a website design.
Nice online browser/atlas with Landsat global mosaic @ 14.5 meters (?).
Data visualization tools grow steep in numbers. Difficult to catch up with all developments. Datavisualization.ch has a nice overview over some of these.
Interesting & informative data portal on environmental and climate change/vulnerability stuff. Well presented.
Looking for a place to upload a screenshot in order to share it within a forum? And no interest in creating a (free) account? Or downloading a software to achieve it? Here is a simple website (in german) which does it.
Interesting, interactive map of the world from NASA to show global/local temperature changes.”The heat is on for the planet as a whole, but what has been happening where you live? Click a place on the map to find out, or enter a location in the search box in the top right-hand corner.”
A clickable guide to the world’s energy use. Nice animation from Nature.
Interesting application: Bringing the mindmap to the web. Interactive. Very smooth. But not sure if I would use it; if I would have the patience to click through the different items.
Since a couple of years I have the idea to produce an interactive book with great photos, videos and really interactive charts. Here is one which seems to be very good…
Very nice interactive graph, which shows the energy flows. Transport, heating, etc.
