This shows 38 maps of the world in completely different formats with different map projections and colorings. 

Jake Red Dorman's curator insight, November 13, 2014 11:43 AM

Map number 7 shows what New Yorkers complain about the most in their beloved city. The complaints are split into noise, graffiti and litter. It is no surprise that most New Yorkers complain about noise in Manhattan, well because it is one of the largest cities in the world, of course there is going to be noise. And then looking on the outskirts of the main city in Manhattan there are mostly complaints about litter. The map is mostly blue in most areas. As for graffiti there are a couple pockets spread out which is where I’m assuming most gang activity takes place. Queens, the Bronx, and Brooklyn is where most of the graffiti is located according to this map. I liked this ma because it shows what you’re going to see or hear in certain places in the City area.

How to create a Custom Search Engine to research preferred websites and integrate it with IntelliWebSearch (video) (by Dominique Pivard)

How to create a Custom Search Engine to research preferred websites and integrate it with IntelliWebSearch (video) (by Dominique Pivard) | Toolkit | Scoop.it

Google’s Custom Search Engine can be a convenient way to restrict searches to several specified domains, like the site:domain.com setting in Google’s Advanced Search for a single site/domain.

 

This video shows how to create a custom search engine for Finnish newspapers that includes the websites of five newspapers, as well as another custom search engine for Wikipedia in three different languages.

In this video, Dominique Pivard (aka CATguru) demonstrates how easy it is to search a number of preferred websites for words or phrases. This can be particularly useful in a number of situations: 1) to find how a specific word or phrase is used in context, 2) to research terminology on a website that does not integrate a search section, 3) to search several websites simultaneously.
