Interactive - National Geographic Magazine - 16 views

  •  
    The map shows population density; the brightest points are the highest densities. Each country is colored according to its average annual gross national income per capita, using categories established by the World Bank (see key below). Some nations - like economic powerhouses China and India - have an especially wide range of incomes. But as the two most populous countries, both are lower middle class when income is averaged per capita.
    It's interesting, but the map is a little wonky, because the income levels and population densities differ in granularity. It kind of works. Kinda doesn't. There seems to be a lot of missing data - or does population density in northern Africa really drop off that quickly (it is desert land, albeit)? A little more explanation in the description or the legend would have been useful.
    There are also three other slides that follow the map (like the one below), but they're mostly just run-of-the-mill list of facts with cutesy icons to show percentages. Not a fan of those at all. Actually, they kind of bother me.

    What is Redcaster?Semantic Web
    The 'Semantic Web' is the concept the Internet is more than just a collection of documents with words in them.  The development of the semantic web consists of efforts to 'understand' what the content is about, and to link it together with related documents.
    Automatic Categorisation
    Redcaster provides a system which can automatically identify the higher-level 'meta' categories that the article discusses.
    Redcaster currently offers two distinct categorisation services:
    Article categories
    For instance, an article about Barack Obama and the annual state of the nation address would return the categories 'United States', 'Politics', 'Government'.  These categories do not need to be specifically mentioned in the article for them to be identified.Related categories
    Redcaster can suggest categories which are closely related to the category in question.  For instance, 'Politics' returns 'United States', 'United Kingdom', 'Government' and more.Learning System
    Redcaster is not a static knowledge base.  It is a learning system capable of recognising new topics and concepts.  If a new subject or person enters the lexicon, then over time this will become a category which Redcaster will start tagging articles with.
    Free access
    Redcaster offers a free account and an easy-to-use interface for news publishers to access.  With this account, publishers can submit either their content directly, or links to published articles.
