About Me

me
My name is Kenneth Davis and I am interested in data analysis and visualization, mapping, and earth science, among other things. My academic training is in geology, and I have worked in environmental consulting, the U.S. Peace Corps, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the United Nations Environment Programme. This blog explores a wide range of topics, ranging from silly to serious, but the common denominator is using data to make sense of the world. It’s also an opportunity for me to explore new ideas and techniques, and share them with interested readers.

  1. Hi Ken,

    I am preparing myself to start a new hobby: drawing (historic) railway diagrams.
    A nice example of a diagram I have in mind is in the July 2003 Issue of Trains Magazine: “Chicago Railroads, 1928: How the Passenger Trains Reached the Loop”.
    However, I don’t intend to do it as professional as Trains did, but just privately as a hobby
    In the process of orientation I came across your post “Swiss Railways Diagram” from Dec. 6, 2013
    It was a very nice example of what I would like to be able to accomplish myself but on a modest scale
    Would you have tips for me about tools, methods, learning resources?

  3. Hello,

    I found your page researching the word ‘Tomato”. I had recently found evidence of this word used on the 1275 Saint Denis map. The “Apple of Paradise” is quite apt from word usage on the map. Possibly more to the word. I’m still in the process of clarification for legibility. Tomato is plain as day. Has possible connection to St. Thomas. Thomas Beckett of Canterbury.

    The origins of the word tomato is not my primary focus. It’s a side tangent to a much larger picture currently unfolding on Academia dot edu. I am getting ready to publish two papers independent of my co-authors. Once I have this completed, I would gladly hand off the tomato information to you to pursue. If interested, please feel free to contact me at my email.

    Thank you for providing very interesting material. Much of which, I shall come back and read further once my current tasks are complete.

    Regards,

    Anthony

    A full list of all of the papers I’m associated with can be found at the following link. I had been anonymous until recently.
