I've shared GeoGuessr before but they now have country-specific quizzes (this is for the United States). When I was a child I used to wonder if woke up somewhere far from home, would I be able to know where I was just by looking at the places around me (I was a geo-geek from way back when). GeoGuessr is the closest thing to finding yourself lost in the world and needing to figure out where you are without being wisked away. GeoGuessr will display 5 locations in GoogleMaps "StreetView" and you have to guess where the images are located. You can pan and zoom in the StreetView to explore the landscape and find more context clues as to where that location is. It is a fantastic exploration exercise.

"Maps bring the horror of Hiroshima home -- literally.
Alex Wellerstein, a nuclear historian at the Stevens Institute of Technology, created a NukeMap that allows you to visualize what the Hiroshima and Nagasaki explosions would look like in your hometown. Kuang Keng Kuek Ser at Public Radio International has also developed a version, using slightly different estimates.
Here is what Little Boy, the Hiroshima bomb, would look like on Wellerstein's map if detonated in New York City."
Gov. Nathan Deal today released the findings from the High Demand Career Initiative (HDCI), an initiative launched in January by Deal and led by the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD), University System of Georgia (USG) and the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) to address Georgia’s important workforce needs. The report highlights overall trends, high-demand careers and skills, challenges, recommendations and what Georgia businesses anticipate they will need in five to 10 years.
Sea-level rise, warming temperatures, heat waves, worsening air quality and water supply stresses are all issues that the southeastern U.S. will face over the next 20 years due to climate change.
Lupita McClenning's insight:
The State of Georgia places regional planning as a top priority for promoting quality growth. Under the Direction of the Department of Community Affairs (DCA), each regional commission is charged with preparing a regional plan that allows communities to identify problems and opportunities evident from a regional perspective, and to focus on how actions at the local level impact the region.
The Regional Plan is a document representing shared agreements for clear, specific and achievable strategies among primary stakeholders (local governments), governmental agencies and citizens as they help shape coastal Georgia’s future.
In July of 2013, a partnership was formed between the College of Environment and Design, University of Georgia (UGA) and the Coastal Regional Commission (CRC). The partnership was formed to assist the CRC in providing research, perform technical analyses and identify strategies by which the CRC can integrate hazard mitigation into the Regional Plan.
The purpose of mitigation planning is to identify policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce risk and future losses. Mitigation Plans form the foundation for a community’s long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses. It creates a framework for risk-based decision making to reduce damages to loves, property and the economy from future disasters.
