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

Unit 1

 

Ellen Van Daele's curator insight, March 22, 9:06 PM

This video expresses how important scale is and how different scales effect each other. Climate and the weather and effected by scales, you must know what the scale they are talking about is in order to know how precise the weather is. 

 

It talks about absolute and relative scale, and how they affect each other. It also discusses how a large scale a smaller size of land is than a small scale. The whole world would be a small scale map, whereas a city would be a large scale.

Satellite Images of Urban Sprawl

Satellite Images of Urban Sprawl | IB Geography (Diploma Programme) | Scoop.it
The past century has been defined by an epic migration of people from rural areas to the city. In 2008, for the first time in history, more of the Earth's population was living in cities than in the countryside.

 

This image gallery is designed "to present images from space [that] track the relentless spread of humanity."  The 'slide bar' in the middle allows the viewer to scroll between before and after images of major metropolitan areas that have experienced dramatic growth in the last 10-30 years.  The attached images is on Dubai, UAE.  Notice the man-made islands, especially the 'archipelago' in the shape of the world that is 2.5 miles off the coast of Dubai.
