Maps visualisations

How to make the data useful ? 
How to make it talk and make visible what we want ?
How to use it to connect groups and communities so they can campaign together ?
How to explore this data to learn on specific issues and share knowledge with others ?

It is fundamental to offer specific map visualisations of the data according to one's interest unless the map is mostly unreadable.



The collected data, for the moment, can be classified and visualised through different ways according to different fields.

Here are below 4 examples:
1- classification in relation to planning issues
2- classification regarding topics
3- classification related to the type of data
4- classification according to the data source

These classifications are never exact because as soon as you define categories you will find items belonging to several.
Perhaps the best way to classify this data would be with tags so it would be possible to extract very specific visualisations. This is an important question that should be discussed collectively.
