European Space Agency Multimedia Gallery

European Space Agency Multimedia Gallery | IB Geography (Diploma Programme) | Scoop.it

This website houses the past research, images and future missions of the European Space Agency. The greatest scientific knowledge we have gained through the space program is actually about our home planet. Space-age technologies literally give geographers a chance to step back and put the Earth in better perspective. Images from this site are fantastic resource use to teach the thematic content, but also it is a great resource to show the relevance of geospatial technologies.  I love this particular image of Venice.  For more see: www.esa.int

World Bank eAtlas of Global Development

"The World Bank eAtlas of Global Development maps and graphs more than 175 thematically organized indicators for over 200 countries, letting you visualize and compare progress on the most important development challenges facing our world. Most indicators cover several decades, so you can see, for example, how 'life expectancy at birth' has improved from 1960 up through the latest year."  This tool should greatly enhance student projects as they will add more data, and see bigger patterns.  To go to the link visit: http://www.app.collinsindicate.com/worldbankatlas-global/en
