Everyone should bookmark, scoop, pin or retweet this!

Gooru looks like a useful tool.

Wow! If this is as good as it looks I think this would make organising learning for younger children easier. I'll have to check it out in more detail though

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.
