It's interesting to see how these ports have gotten so big. So many are in China, and that is probably because there are so many products made there that are shipped to other places around the world.

Matt Ramsdell's curator insight, December 14, 2015 4:00 PM

The interesting concept to these places is that most of them are all located on the East coast of the asian continent. This is a prime example of how global trade has shifted to the Pacific giving rise to these import/export global markets allowing their economy to shift and grow at a rapid pace.  These areas of global transportation has created the "4 Tigers" as they are all within the top 10 global transportation ports.

This is a pretty informative interactive map of the largest ports in the world. Very well put together to help some understandings of trade. Most of the ports are on the East coast of China which is the Pacific Sea. The reason there are probably so many here in China is because they make a large amount of product that needs to be shipped worldwide. They are like the leading country in imports and exports to other global or major global markets.

Motion of Tectonic Plates

"This video is from the BBC documentary film Earth: The Power Of The Planet.  The clip is also embedded in this story map that tells the tale of Earth’s tectonic plates, their secret conspiracies, awe-inspiring exhibitions and subtle impacts on the maps and geospatial information we so often take for granted as unambiguous."

Where Does Your Water Come From?

Where Does Your Water Come From? | Educated | Scoop.it

This interactive map documents where 443 million people around the world get there water (although the United States data is by far the most extensive).  Most people can't answer this question.  A recent poll by The Nature Conservancy discoverd that 77% of Americans (not on private well water) don't know where their water comes from, they just drink it.  This link has videos, infographics and suggestions to promote cleaner water.  This is also a fabulous example of an embedded map using ArcGIS Online to share geospatial data with a wider audience.

I was definitely unaware of where my drinking water came from. This is nice, user-friendly map... Hopefully it gets updated regularly, as it will be interesting to see how these sources change over time.

water is a resource we all depend on. Some of my best studies were on local Chesapeake Bay issues.
