Study into Next Generation Digital Earth

Study into Next Generation Digital Earth | Geospatial Human Geography | Scoop.it

"The authors call for the next generation Digital Earth to support multi-disciplinary research across the social, physical, and environmental sciences, to be able to visualise complex patterns such as migration flows and sense of place, and to emphasise change (from past, to present and future) across multiple thematic areas such climate, sea-level rise and food supplies. Integrating these multiple views and the interactions across themes would allow to investigate how the Earth works and how it might evolve in the future, rather than to observe how it currently looks."

Human Geography: A New Radical Journal

Human Geography: A New Radical Journal | Geospatial Human Geography | Scoop.it

Human Geography is broadly conceived to cover topics ranging from geopolitics, through cultural and economic issues, to political ecology. We envisage a well-written, critical, intellectual journal, not full of empirical detail, and not encumbered by too many citations, a journal that can be read in its entirety.

New Amazon highway 'would put Peru's last lost tribes at risk'

New Amazon highway 'would put Peru's last lost tribes at risk' | Geospatial Human Geography | Scoop.it
A fierce row has broken out over a controversial plan to drive a road through pristine Amazon rainforest, imperilling the future of some of the world's last uncontacted tribes.

 

The 125-mile (200km) road would pass through the Alto Purús national park in Peru, connecting a remote area to the outside world but opening up the most biologically and culturally important area of the upper Amazon to logging, mining and drug trafficking. Opponents of the plan fear it will threaten the existence of uncontacted tribes such as the Mashco-Piro. The first detailed photographs of members of the tribe made headlines around the world earlier this year after they were spotted on a riverbank.

What is in a Name?

Issues in Focus East Sea...

 

Does it matter if I call the sea to the east of the Korean Peninsula the "East Sea" and if you call the body of water the west of Japan the "Sea of Japan?"  Absolutely.  When dealing with matters of diplomacy, a name reflects how a country is viewed.  For many years the Sea of Japan has been the defacto name internationally and South Korean officials have lobbied (quite successfully) to bolster the legitimacy of the name within the media, publishers and cartographers.  What other places have multiple names?  What are the political overtones to the name distinctions?  To watch a 10 video on the history of the name, see: http://bit.ly/Lu5puJ

This issue seemed to be largely overshadowed by China’s claims in the Philippines. While changing the name of the Sea of Japan may have no immediate tangible impact on either country, it will certainly have a symbolic one and could possible pave the way for a claim to exclusive water rights within the area in the future. If a valuable resource such as oil is discovered in this disputed area then perhaps Russia, China or even the US will also get involved?

Symbolic value is South Korea's main aim, to minimize Japan's (their former colonizer) dominance in the region.
Lamar Ewing White III's comment, August 23, 2012 5:20 PM
Of course it matters whether you call it the East Sea opposed to calling it the Sea of Japan, just like it matters if you call the Mississippi River the Central River or something lame like that. I feel like Japanese citizens would take much offense if someone tried to change the sea's name. It is traced back to Japanese history and heritage which kind of gives them the right to have it named after them. I use the Mississippi River as a comparison because it also traces history and heritage and has every right to be named after the state. Also, (and this might be off subject), if we changed the name of Sea of Japan it would probably take a generation to get the name remembered as "East Sea". It would only create confusion just like if we changed the name of the Mississippi.

Social Impact through Satellite Remote Sensing - Visualizing Acute & Chronic Crises beyond the Visible Spectrum

Social Impact through Satellite Remote Sensing - Visualizing Acute & Chronic Crises beyond the Visible Spectrum | Geospatial Human Geography | Scoop.it

"For decades, satellite remote sensing has provided fundamental insights in countless physical science fields such as ecology, geosciences, atmospheric physics, and chemistry. However, as it relates to human and socioeconomic processes, satellite remote sensing is an incredibly powerful tool that is underutilized. Human behavior and socioeconomic parameters have been successfully studied via proxy through remote sensing of the physical environment by measuring the growth of city boundaries and transportation networks, crop health, soil moisture, and slum development from visible and multispectral imagery."

Resource: Human Geography: People, Places, and Change | Geospatial Human Geography | Scoop.it

"Human Geography combines economic and cultural geography to explore the relationships between humans and their natural environment, and to track the broad social patterns that shape human societies. Featuring communities around the world that are grappling with major socioeconomic change, the programs help students understand present-day events within the scope of clearly recognizable trends, and realize the impact that government, corporate, and individual decisions may have on people and places near and far. This series may serve as an introductory course for students of cultural or economic geography, or as a resource for sociology, anthropology, or social science departments."

'Huge' water resource in Africa

'Huge' water resource in Africa | Geospatial Human Geography | Scoop.it

Scientists say the notoriously dry continent of Africa is sitting on a vast reservoir of groundwater.  Now scientists have for the first time been able to carry out a continent-wide analysis of the water that is hidden under the surface in aquifers. Researchers from the British Geological Survey and University College London (UCL) have mapped in detail the amount and potential yield of this groundwater resource across the continent.
