How to Design a Viral Map and Still Respect Yourself in the Morning

How to Design a Viral Map and Still Respect Yourself in the Morning | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

Just about anybody can make a map and slap it up on the internet these days, and that’s a mixed blessing for professional cartographers. On the upside, they’re mostly happy to see more people taking an interest and getting engaged in mapmaking. On the other hand, some of the maps made by amateurs are cringe-inducing mockeries of good cartographic design. And to make things worse — some of them go viral.

 

But instead of just making snarky comments about these amateur maps to their colleagues on Twitter, cartographers might want to consider the qualities that make maps like this go viral, according to information designer and cartographer Marty Elmer, who runs the popular blog Map Hugger.

Our traditional view of slavery has left us to think it is a thing of the past.  The newly released Global Slavery Index tells us otherwise.  So what does slavery look like today?  Where is it happening the most?  What are the social, political and economic forces that create this even today?

Favela Landscapes

"This gallery has a fantastic set of images showing Brazil’s poor squatter settlements-the favelas."

 

See the cultural landscape of how millions live in a megacity.

Norka McAlister's curator insight, February 14, 2015 7:53 PM

It is interesting how the demographic pattern of Favela serve as the only option for the housing of the poor in Brazil. The lack of jobs and better opportunities force many families to build their houses in the heel of the mountains. However, these mountain based houses are faced with many severe problems involving electricity, sewage, and water. The city offers a lot of opportunities for everyone, except for the poor who are the most in need. Transportation is another issue for these impoverished communities. It takes a lot of time to go up and down from these favelas, and becomes difficult for those that live on the highest peaks. Another important concern is drugs and crime rates that make these poor neighborhood dangerous in which to reside. Favelas are typical houses in the Brazil, which has the highest percentage of poverty out of all South American countries. In the meantime, favela will continue to serve as the permanent residencies of those too poor to afford housing in the Brazilian urban landscape.
