Here are some of my favorite digital mapping projects for teaching and studying American history

Susan Parker Grice's insight:

The Spatial History Project is a visual bacchanalia of conceptualized digitized information that is dynamic and layered with enormous attention to historical detail.  The digital projects here are a wonderful AP Human Geography or World Geography curriculum as well as history.

Great how tech and globalization can help represed people in other countries.

Meagan Harpin's curator insight, October 6, 2013 5:07 PM

The slum-mapping movement began in India almost a decade ago and migrated to africa, the idea of this is to make slums a reality to people who have never set foot in one before. The maps can be used in court to stop evictions or simply to raise awarance. I think this idea is on the right track of what needs to be done. These people need help and so many people incuding the governement pretend they arent their but with these maps as proof they can no longer do that.    

Elizabeth Bitgood's curator insight, March 19, 2014 10:24 AM

Slums and squatter settlements are a problem that a lot of the developing world has to deal with.  The unsafe and unsanitary buildings cause headaches and problems for the leaders of the cities they surround.  This story is hopeful in that the city did manage to bring a water line out to get clean water to the people living in this area.  Perhaps this will lead to a better quality of life of the inhabitants of this particular slum.  Also the project of mapping such areas can be a useful tool for city planners to better regulate these areas and help the people that live there.,

T3G Lightning Talks | common core maps | Scoop.it

Earlier this summer the T3G participants had an informal lightning talk session with many people sharing their favorite educational, geospatial or professional development tools.  I was amazed as some of the incredible projects these fantastic educator are involved with and I didn’t have time to properly credit all the speakers, but this was the best I could do to capture some incredible projects.  Below are some of the links:

POPULATION PYRAMIDS!

Isabelle Zahn's curator insight, January 18, 2014 3:02 PM

In this article you see the concept of gender population and folk culture. This article talks about how Iran has had their baby boom population in there right now between the mid teens and the mid-20s. It also talks about how all of the young people are starting to control everything and things are becoming run by the young people. Most of the government is run by young people there all of the young people are just starting to pop up and down getting married as you get there I having more kids because it's a big huge population of young people. This has an impact on every music sucks local national and international communities because every community at some point will have a baby boom generation for us right now it's kind of an older generation for other countries the younger generations so really every time she goes through these baby-boom stages. Some short-term effects of this could be a lot of new births because all the people are starting to get a little bit older because their mid teens to mid 20s they will be getting married soon and will want have families.  Some long-term effects could be another baby boom generation possibly coming because of this baby boom generation all the side to have kids that he couldn't another baby boom generation were everybody wants to have a kid so their country may decide to good use birth control or something that will reduce the chances of having another baby good population because their country can't support all of those people.

World's first global real-time air pollution map & app launched

World's first global real-time air pollution map & app launched | common core maps | Scoop.it

Just in time for the Paris climate talks, a French startup rolls out a live air pollution map, accompanied by an app that delivers localized alerts and air quality recommendations.

Susan Parker Grice's insight:

Exactly what we need for students to not only document real-time scientific data alerts, but political reaction and policy.  I would also encourage research into social climate in regard to clear pollution and toxicity dangers regionally. Historically, citizens have been forced to ignore environmental dangers in lieu of jobs and security.

Unit 2: Population and Migration

 

This article features an interactive map that displays the numbers of IDPs (internally displaced persons) made by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. You are able to look through the years and see the varying amounts of IDPs, as well as the countries that produced the most of them and which continue to.

 

This goes along with the human geography theme of refugees and IDPs, and this is a very helpful article in providing a simple way to see an overview of where and to what extent this most occurs.

What an awesome map! A great resource for teaching kids history- and making it simple to understand, as well as interactive. Can be used in conjunction with the 'Protest Sites' map I scooped above; in a unit on protests and change around the world. 

 

I think it links to most areas of Humanities, which is cool. I showed it to some of the kids from placement and they loved it!

These map are very cool. They display things that we would not normally know. Some of the maps are very interesting

I discovered new things about the different countries of the world just from viewing and reading these maps. Though I had an idea as to what the maps would reveal when reading the title based on the little knowledge of certain countries, it was still eye-opening just seeing the results that were shown.
Bri Coins's comment, September 12, 2013 7:43 PM
Very interesting! To read about other peoples out look on America and the different comparisons on topics was cool. The maps definitely surprised me, most were some Ive never even seen before! The map that showed "Where people are the most and least racially tolerant" was very cool, and seeing as America has had some racial problems and to see that most of the population was ok with living next to a different raced person was very cool. I think ill personally have a better and different outlook on certain things through out the country and hopefully one day, the world!
