Look like though it is a return to the original trade routes. Most of the world's trade was in the far east and the Indian Ocean up until about the 17th Century when the "New World" silver and the slave trade exploded in the west.
Maegan Connor's curator insight, December 17, 2013 12:49 PM

I love interactive maps because it gives thorough visuals of areas that don't always stick out.  This map is particularly cool because it's a view of the world's 50 largest ports that are used for international trade.  The ports themselves are massive and it is noticeable that the majority of them are in China and Southeast Asia where many of the world's goods are produced.  The U.S. has 4 ports on the list and while the NY and LA ones are expected, I was surprised to see Savannah as the fourth city. However, upon exploring it with the map, I can see how it is an extremely large port and is probably a main trade hub for the Southern U.S. 

The ports around the world are major contributors to globalization because trade is historically one of the biggest industries that connects countries all over the world through the exchange of raw and manufactured goods and materials.  Cargo ships are massive in size and can carry tons of goods around the world.  I remember going to the naval base in Norfolk and at the port, there were piles of cargo stacked six crates high being loaded onto a ship to be sent to anywhere in the world. Port cities are vitally important to international trade which is a major piece of the world's economy so the enormity of these parts is definitely necessary and really interesting to see in terms of design.
