World Atlas is an educational resource for world maps, atlases, and in-depth geography information. Teachers and students: free maps of Europe, USA, Canada, Florida, Caribbean Islands and much more.
This World Atlas, in addition to have many maps at a variety of scales as is very common these days, has the added feature of embedding facts and other informative features based on your scale and regional context. Students can explore this at their own pace to learn about what every region of the world that interests them the most.
April 22 will mark Earth Day worldwide, an event now in its 42nd year and observed in 175 countries. The original grass-roots environmental action helped spur the Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act in the United States.
This is a great collection of photos, including this one from Mexico City's Paseo de la Reforma (where I did my dissertation research). Protestors placed gas masks of the statues lining Mexico City's elite boulevard to protest air pollution in the high-altitude basin.
The average temperature across the U.S.was 8.6 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th-century average...
Here is a link to some data that backs up what most Americans already knew: the month of March was much warmer that just "unseasonably warm." IN the Northeast, it was 9.8 degrees (F) above the average, and the warmest March in 118 years.
The averages of the scenarios in the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA) are presented in this figure, for the year 2090, with the surface temperatures over land, the size of the polar ice cap, and the outer limits of permafrost. This map features shipping routes in addition - as the sea ice is decreasing, the potential for developing shipping in the Arctic increases.

This website houses the past research, images and future missions of the European Space Agency. The greatest scientific knowledge we have gained through the space program is actually about our home planet. Space-age technologies literally give geographers a chance to step back and put the Earth in better perspective. Images from this site are fantastic resource use to teach the thematic content, but also it is a great resource to show the relevance of geospatial technologies. I love this particular image of Venice. For more see: www.esa.int

This is a fabulous collection of geospatial resources to “explore the world, one map at a time.” There are high-resolution digital wall maps, animated fly-over maps, thematic census data maps, aerial photography and other mapping tools. The focus of many of these resources is the Western portion of the United States, but there are many on the national scale as well (see the ‘Electronic Map Library’ and select ‘Unites States Atlas’ for census maps on dozens of variables).
