Pittsburgh Then and Now

Pittsburgh Then and Now | Geomatic | Scoop.it

This interactive feature provides a great tool for analyzing the urban historical geography of Pittsburgh.  This would also be a valuable resource for teaching about the cultural landscape.  What are the major changes you see between the two sets of images?

The world map of chocolate (made out of chocolate)

The world map of chocolate (made out of chocolate) | Geomatic | Scoop.it

You may be focussing on chocolate over the weekend - but where does it come from? A global trade analysed. In chocolate (this is what maps are made for!

 

What is the geography of chocolate like?  There is a dark side (no pun intended) to the production of cocoa in many places such as West Africa.

Interesting for our KS1 chocolate topic.

Brett Sinica's curator insight, November 10, 2013 5:43 PM

We all love chocolate.  We all love diamonds and jewels.  In western worlds, these items are easily come by in grocery stores and elsewhere, but what got them there was a challenge.  People in poorer tropical regions around the world worked to get the raw goods of these delicate items we all enjoy.  The payout difference is immense from cocoa to chocolate.  It is sometimes a very crooked market where if it wasn't for the hard working people who get the raw ingredients, chocolate as we know it wouldn't be the same.

I hope the production keep growing up. We need more chocolate and specially in Africa.
