Property Taxes on Owner-Occupied Housing

The median reflects the mix of houses, local school districts, government spending, expenses, etc. So the average for NYS at $3600 reflects inexpensive homes with modest taxes, and a smaller percentage of expensive hoems with taxes 5X and 10X the median.

Sustaining the Internet with Hyperbolic Mapping

The Internet infrastructure is severely stressed. Rapidly growing overheads associated with the primary function of the Internetarouting information packets between any two computers in the worldacause concerns among Internet experts that the existing Internet routing architecture may not sustain even another decade. In this paper, we present a method to map the Internet to a hyperbolic space. Guided by a constructed map, which we release with this paper, Internet routing exhibits scaling properties that are theoretically close to the best possible, thus resolving serious scaling limitations that the Internet faces today. Besides this immediate practical viability, our network mapping method can provide a different perspective on the community structure in complex networks.

Polymaps

Polymaps provides speedy display of multi-zoom datasets over maps, and supports a variety of visual presentations for tiled vector data, in addition to the usual cartography fromAOpenStreetMap,ACloudMade,ABing, and other providers of image-based web maps.

Because Polymaps can load data at a full range of scales, it's ideal for showing information from country level on down to states, cities, neighborhoods, and individual streets. Because Polymaps uses SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) to display information, you can use familiar, comfortableACSS rules to define the design of your data. And because Polymaps uses the well knownAspherical mercator tile format for its imagery and its data, publishing information is a snap.

Invisible, Hidden, Parallel Cities: Twitter Landscapes

By revealing the social networks present within the urban environment, Invisible Cities describes a new kind of cityaa city of the mind. The movie below byAChristian Marc Schmidt displays geocoded activity from online services such as Twitter and Flickr, both in real-time and in aggregate. Real-time activity is represented as individual nodes that appear whenever a message or image is posted. Aggregate activity is reflected in the underlying terrain: over time, the landscape warps as data is accrued, creating hills and valleys representing areas with high and low densities of data.

In the piece, nodes are connected by narrative threads, based on themes emerging from the overlaid information. These pathways create dense meta-networks of meaning, blanketing the terrain and connecting disparate areas of the city:
