Alexina's curator insight, December 16, 2013 12:49 PM

These images are released into the Flickr Commons <http://www.flickr.com/commons/institutions/> by the British Library from digitization done by Microsoft and given to the British Library.  Quote: "The images cover a wide range of themes and  topics and are presented in different forms including: maps, geological diagrams, landscapes, beautiful illustrations, wall paintings, illuminated and decorative letters, comical satire, and many more."


I look forward to having time to use some of those in the Community Lilbrary on the virtual world grid of InWorldz. The problem is having the time to identify / locate images. Manifests of the public domain images are at https://github.com/BL-Labs/imagedirectory .

Mesmerizing Migration: Watch 118 Bird Species Migrate

Mesmerizing Migration: Watch 118 Bird Species Migrate | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

"For the first time, scientists at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology have documented migratory movements of bird populations spanning the entire year for 118 species throughout the Western Hemisphere. The study finds broad similarity in the routes used by specific groups of species—vividly demonstrated by animated maps showing patterns of movement across the annual cycle. The results of these analyses were published today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, January 21, 1:38 PM

This still image above doesn't do justice to this animated map of bird migrations (species key here).  While modern humans by and large are tied to particular plots of land, not all species have that same approach to gathering and using resources.  On #DarwinDay, it is important to consider the connections between biology and geography; many of the greatest biological discoveries were spatial and geographic in nature.
