April 25, 2016 // 0 Comments

This sure beats sitting in rush hour traffic. In La Paz, the sky rail take commuters where they need to go. This is the ultimate example of humans changing their environment out of necessity. Teachers: Use this to compare/contrast LDC vs MDC cities and what it means to have no city planning. Take the discussion further and ask students why this skirl can exist in a developing country but not in the [...]

INTERACTIVE: Map Projection- Google and Jason Davies

August 19, 2014 // 0 Comments

Thanks to the Vsauce video, What Does the Earth Look Like,  we can use a few other helpful sites to interact with map projection. The first one is Google’s Mercator Map Puzzle where it gives you red country pieces that have distorted sizes and shapes. The player must drag the shapes around to find out what they “correctly” look like on a mercator map. The second interactive is Jason Davies’ interactive map projection website that allows the user to select a different map projection from a drop down and see how it effects the different shapes of the continents. Look for a worksheet that uses this website later. This one is [...]

VIDEO via FreeBase: Charting Culture by Mapping Migration

August 14, 2014 // 0 Comments

Video: Thousands of Years of Human Migration in Five Minutes By Lisa Raffensperger | July 31, 2014 2:00 pm   It’s enough to put an old-fashioned family tree to shame. A visualization of the migration routes of more than 150,000 people, from 600 BC to the present day, brings to life human history in the Western world in an engrossing and novel way. The model, produced by Maximilian Schich, at the University of Texas at Dallas, along with collaborators from the U.S., Switzerland and Hungary, represents the birth and death dates and locations of individual people. These data came from community database Freebase, a well-known German encyclopedia of the world’s artists, and Getty’s online artist names database. The sample included such notable individuals as David, King of Israel, and Leonardo da Vinci, but, since Freebase is editable by anyone, it also included average folk. “You will have people where we know that there was a carpenter in Nuremberg, who lived from 1530 to [...]

VIDEO RESOURCE: The Most Complex International Borders in the World

August 6, 2014 // 0 Comments

Message from the creator: In this video I look at some of the most complex international border. Of course, there are more complex borders in the world, but this video looks at some of my favourites. I look at the 3 enclaves countries of the world: Vatican City, San Marino and Lesotho. As well as Campione d’Italia, an Italian exclave which is an enclave of Switzerland. I then take things up a notch and look at enclaves within enclaves. The town of Baarle which is in the Netherlands and Belgium is an incredibly complicated border. But not quite as much as the Cooch Behar region of India and Bangladesh. This is followed by a look at the odd situation of Bir Tawil, the only unclaimed land on Earth outside of Antarctica (which is itself a place for complex borders!) I finish off the video by looking at the island of Cyprus, which may look like a borderless island, but is in fact far from [...]
