DataFrames: A journey through global data

Guido Robazza, Filippo Lovato, Gustavo Romanillos

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Climate change and extreme weather events, territorial fragmentation and spillovers that cause pandemics, water and food management, loss of biodiversity, unprecedented urban growth, carbon emissions and international migrations, are some of the topics analysed.
The work takes the observer through some snapshots and looks at how the Sustainable Development Goals are addressed at a national and at a global level. A local-to-global comparative approach serves as a magnifying lens. By scrutinising particular geographical, physical and socio-economic phenomena, the investigation aims at decoding and explaining some global challenges.
The data visualization is complemented by a satellite imagery set developed by IUSS Pavia - CIRTA Research Centre that further explores the phenomena on a territorial level, exploiting the seductive power of the colours and geometries of the Earth seen from above.
The section captures a world that is crossing an unprecedented moment of multiple and complex challenges.
