The site, Community Maps: Digital and Social Geographies of Great Britain (www.gps.communities.gov.uk/DigitalInclusion/), is intended to support the national digital inclusion agenda.
It allows local authority and partnership users to understand patterns of social and digital disadvantage across the UK. This ground-breaking local analysis will then help to underpin local initiatives that tackle social and digital exclusion.
The TaSC data looks estimates the local geographical distribution of household internet access in 2001-02 and 2005-06. It also shows local patterns of the amount of time spent at work and on the internet by members of British households in 2000.
Ben Anderson, Director of TaSC, explains: ‘This is an excellent opportunity to showcase our work on developing ways to estimate small area distributions of household expenditure on a range of goods and services, as well as indicators of income, health and social/civic well-being. The estimates of internet access were based on spatial microsimulation of Census 2001 and ONS Expenditure and Food Survey data whilst the time-use estimates used the ONS Time Use Survey 2000.’
This research was supported by the Economic and Social Research Council’s Using Time-Use Data to Analyse Macro and Microsocial Change in an e-Society project (RES-341-25-0004).

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
