Cartographic Anomalies: How Map Projections Have Shaped Our Perceptions of the World

Cartographic Anomalies: How Map Projections Have Shaped Our Perceptions of the World | APHG Ideas and Resources | Scoop.it

Elizabeth Borneman explores how cartography and cartographic projections help and hinder our perception of the world.

"How do you think the world (starting with our perceptions) could change if the map looked differently? What if Australia was on top and the hemispheres switched? By changing how we look at a map we truly can begin to explore and change our assumptions about the world we live in."

 

Geography doesn’t just teach us about the Earth; it provides ways for thinking about the Earth that shapes how we see the world.  Maps do the same; they represent a version of reality and that influences how we think about places. 

 

Tags: mapping, perspective.

Use as small cards that students can sort in small groups?  Post as gallery walk?  Skill builder to identify areas of distortion (shape, area, distance, etc)?

YEC Geo's curator insight, August 15, 7:03 AM

I love maps, but it's easy to forget that reproducing a three-dimensional object on a two-dimensional surface involves many trade-offs.  This article highlights those trade-offs.

Lindley Amarantos's curator insight, September 5, 6:28 AM

Would you perception of the world change if you saw it upside down?

'Rice theory' explains north-south China cultural differences | APHG Ideas and Resources | Scoop.it
A new cultural psychology study has found that psychological differences between the people of northern and southern China mirror the differences between community-oriented East Asia and the more individualistic Western world -- and the differences seem to have come about because southern China has grown rice for thousands of years, whereas the north has grown wheat.

Hungry, hungry humans | APHG Ideas and Resources | Scoop.it
As global population grows, are we ever going to run out of food? There are lots of people who say we need to work very hard to make farming more efficient to feed the word. Then there are others who say, no, the real problem is more equitably dividing the food up, and efficient farming techniques actually make the inequality worse. Finally, there are people who say that growing more, and sharing it better, doesn’t matter as long as keep making babies. Here we sort through the sweeping claims an
