World Airports Voronoi

Online visualization by Jason Davies presents the world organized as territories in relation to the distance between airports:

Each region is closer to a particular airport than any other. This partitioning of the sphere is called a spherical Voronoi diagram, and was calculated by d3.geo.voronoi, which is currently underdevelopment.

andallthatshizzle said: Hey there, If you can, can you help me come up with some debates and conclusions to this question, “Climate change is our fault; everyone should do something about it.”

I’m not sure how I would come up with “debates,” but here’s an extensive list of objections to anthropogenic climate change from skeptics along with their science-based rebuttals.

That answers the first half of your question, and I welcome everyone here to add their own sources if they have them. The second half of your question is more like ethics and policy — rather than science — which are murkier affairs. Yale’s School of Forestry and Environmental Science has a collection of links on the subject, but I haven’t looked through them all and can’t vouch for their utility. Again, if anyone has more resources on this, feel free to share.

Hope this helps.

Roger Tomlinson, 1933-2014

For those who don’t know, Roger Tomlinson was basically the father of GIS (my field of study). He was an incredible visionary who served in the RAF and was the first to bring computers into the field of mapping and spatial analysis. A true loss for the entire geography community.
