If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.

The eclectic craft of data visualization embraces several traditionally discrete subjects like cognitive science, graphic design, cartography and computer science. I use this multidisciplinary recipe to visually communicate various real world phenomena occurring in all walks of life around us as filtered through my analytical thinking.
CartoSkill is a key to visually explore, analyze and understand the multifaceted cause of a particular phenomenon and their corelation. Such occurring if represented through simple data sheets will be dry, difficult and boring. But I dish them out effectively and accurately through visuals that are aesthetically appealing, as well as easily perceivable. My process of preparing geo data visuals for CartoSkill is as follows :
I have more than 5 years of experience in Map making, GIS analysis and development. I have worked in various projects spanning into different fields like Defense, Municipal GIS, Forestry and others. I specialise in Web GIS development using Open Source software.
I did M.Tech. in Geomatics from Indian Institute of Surveying & Mapping, Hyderabad. Before that I did Masters in Geography from Pune University, Pune.
Currently I am working as Research Assistant at Town & Country Planning Organisation, Ministry of Urban Development, Govt. of India. My primary responsibilities include interpretation of collected data, preparation of reports, organising and supervising surveying teams, preparation of GIS database for Master Plans, preparing thematic maps.

Terrorism is defined, at its simplest, as: any act designed to cause terror. Despite its name, not all actions that are terrifying or terrible are described as terrorism. There is no universal consensus as to what is or is not included, but terrorism is generally understood to feature a political objective, whether that means the politics of nationalism, ethnicity, religion, ideology or social class, amongst others. Definitions as to which acts of violence are considered terrorism will be more often subjective than objective. Since the terrorist act is the symptom of a struggle that has a national, religious or social cause, then the response to it is also often determined by ethnicity, beliefs or class. Furthermore, since attitudes to nationalism, religion, and social status tend to evolve over the course of time, it follows that acts of terrorism, and the individuals or organisations engaging in that terrorism, may - and often are - re-examined retrospectively, being either legitimised or criminalised according to the subsequent prevailing political perspectives.
The Global Terrorism Database (GTD) is a database of incidents of terrorism from 1970 onward. The database is maintained by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) at the University of Maryland, College Park in the United States.

The Static Visuals are complete graphical representations, highlighting the significant aspects of a particular phenomenon and instantly communicating with the viewers. The aesthetically designed visuals are effective in communicating complex data which are otherwise difficult to grasp.
The interactive visuals as prepared on my site take the viewer on an journey through an artistic and innovative medium. My Interactive Visuals are meant to bring home the multivariatedness of a happening creating a deep impression upon the viewer's mind.
