The year that was 2010

Posted by Thejesh GN On December - 31 - 201010 COMMENTS

Now that you are used to “The year that was (2007, 2008, 2009)” posts, I will get into the post with out introduction.

1. Sabbatical – spent most of my time at Janaagraha thanks to Infosys. My sabbatical will end on Jan 15. Wait for a detailed post.

2. My sister got married.

3. Did a month long motorcycle ride across India to celebrate my 30th birthday. Initial plan was to do 3000kms. At last I ended up doing 5000+kms. It was a life changing ride. I haven’t written much about the ride. But I promise, I will. Check all posts tagged #3kfor30.
Surprisingly you can make new friends at 30. I guess I never met so many interesting people in one year, of course 1998 was a different story.

4. Restarted YAPodcast as 1by2coffee with Veetrag. Now we have nearly 2000 downloads. Its been fun. We are planning to do at least 25 episodes in 2011 against 12 this year.

5. Planning to raise $500 to setup a computer center at Kodagalli with UbuntuAtWork. Thanks to friends we are already at $325. The rest should be done in another 15 days. I will write a detailed note how we used this money.

6. I have been blogging for seven years now. Thanks for all the support.

I wish you all a very successful and peaceful twenty eleven.

Choropleth maps of Bangalore BBMP Wards

Posted by Thejesh GN On December - 17 - 20107 COMMENTS

“The choropleth map provides an easy way to visualize how a measurement varies across a geographic area or it shows the level of variability within a region.” – Wikipedia

Its an easy, colorful, effective and simple data visualization. At Janaagraha we use them visualize ward level data of Bangalore. A week back I thought it would be useful for others too and hence wrote a small script that could be used by anybody to create choropleth maps for Bangalore.

I wrote the initial script and then Anand helped me by adding more features. Its no where near completion. You can help us to resolve issues or by suggesting features.

Check some choropleth images created using the script.
