Plotting geospatial information for Non US locations poses many challenges, ranging from data availability to the heavy lift in data preprocessing. For instance, shapely format for the vector is not always guaranteed, and even so the granularity might not be sufficient.
For a country as vast as Indonesia, having the ability to do spatial analysis at scale can have tremendous benefits for both scholarly and professional work. Therefore, when I came across this GitHub repo with village level GeoJSON granularity (taken from Duscapil), my first response is to fork it.
My aim is simple: to try and make it so…
Bridging the geometric data available in GeoJson.io into analytics use cases.
Working in Analytics space for a ride hailing tech company, often I realize information available in spatial/GIS format can provide unique insights easily miss-able in conventional data analysis. For example, instead of looking at time series on city level, being able to observe trends on certain geographical boundaries can help us localize anomalies and draw better insights (i.e what happen to trips from and to malls during pandemic? similarly, what happens to residentials during long holiday?)
While the engineering team has developed s2 library which divided spatial map into…

We are what we consume. Unfortunately, for many of us, it doesn’t take literal starvation to consume poorly. How often do we pause and reflect on what drives the decision?
Here are interesting facts. According to WHO, the worldwide prevalence of obesity nearly tripled between 1975 and 2016 — that’s 1.9 billion adults in 2016 alone (in 2021 it’s most certainly higher especially among children due to pandemic).
Over-consumption can be in intake of information too. Daily social media consumption jumps from 90 minutes…

At some point in life, you’ll come across a rather existentialist question: “You’re alive and chances are you’re gonna be alive for a while. So what now?”
If you’re like most people, these questions can sometimes lead to a crisis and if you happen to be in your 20s — a quarter life one. What is there to life, really? Some others might’ve been lucky to discover their truth quickly. For quite handful of people…
The windblume festival is coming to an end. It’s been a while since our Traveler first came to Teyvat. With Genshin Impact revenue just exceeded $1 billion this march, so much also had happened during our time exploring Mondstadt and journeying to Liyue. From rescuing Dvalin, protecting the Jade Chamber, helping Ella Musk practice Hilicurlian, paying tribute to the Adeptus, to ‘taking care’ of Timmie’s birds... you name it.

The first time I came across Antoine de Saint Exupery’s book is when I read this book. It was early morning at 4 AM, not a usual time to start reading and sure enough, it was a mistake. I couldn’t put it down. Before I knew it, I’d finished the…
