Brushing aside 15-year hiatus, IPCC says strong government action is needed to combat climate change and extreme weather
The European Commission’s climate campaign ‘A World You Like. With A Climate You Like’ aims to raise awareness across Europe of the need to combat climate change, especially through sharing expertise and highlighting success stories across the EU that combat global warming.

Visualizing NYC’s 1,100+ Datasets
Chris Whong recently visualized New York City’s 1,100+ open datasets, bundling them by category — business, education, social services, transportation, recreation, etc. By clicking on one of the dots you are taken to the specific dataset on NYC OpenData.
According to a post on the Code for America Brigade Tumblr, ”this is a force-directed graph generated with the charting library d3.js. NYC’s open data portal runs on the Socrata platform and this visualization was created using the “dataset of datasets" and the Socrata Open Data API (SODA).”

F-STEP / Introducing Pingar Taxonomy Generator
F-STEP, which stands for Focused SKOS Taxonomy Extraction Process, automatically creates taxonomies focused on a particular document collection by utilizing public external sources that define the semantics of relevant taxonomy concepts, including Freebase, DBPedia, Wikipedia, and, if available, additional thesauri or taxonomies for related domains, e.g. IPSV or Agrovoc. The result is a custom-built taxonomy, expressed in SKOS, a standard RDF format.
