Aerial Photographs Catalogue the Life and Death of Volcanic Islands

Aerial Photographs Catalogue the Life and Death of Volcanic Islands | Map@Print | Scoop.it

Volcanic islands can seem to appear out of nowhere, emerging from the ocean like breaching monsters of the deep. Below, Mika McKinnon explains how these odd geological formations are born, how they evolve, and how they eventually vanish back beneath the waves.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 7, 6:21 AM

Where an island is along this developmental continuum says much about the human populations that may inhabit said island.  If the island is tall and young with rich volcanic soil, the mountain will attract rainfall and the soil could support agriculture, making the island able to sustain a higher population density.  On the other hand, an old, eroding island with little rainfall and depleted soils will need human inhabitants to rely on the ocean's resources for food and would thus support a more minimal population.  These islands are changing, even if the time scale is slow--but just recently two disconnected islands 'merged' as growing volcanic island has expanded in the Pacific.

PIRatE Lab's curator insight, April 7, 8:50 AM

Darwin was the first to bring an academic overview to the formation of these coral-harboring islands but the beauty and diversity were really first brought home with free aerial imagery (ala Google Earth, etc.).

Cartographier les interstices de la ville (Strabic) | Map@Print | Scoop.it

Parcourir la ville, la saisir en mouvement, et la restituer ensuite à travers une carte. Telle est la démarche de Mathias Poisson. Diplômé de l’École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle (ENSCI/Les Ateliers), parallèlement à son travail de scénographe et interprète pour le théâtre et la danse, Mathias Poisson déploie un intérêt particulier pour la promenade et l’expérience subjective des lieux à travers plusieurs supports tels la carte, la visite guidée ou la performance.

Portolan Charts 'Too Accurate' to Be Medieval

Portolan Charts 'Too Accurate' to Be Medieval | Map@Print | Scoop.it

Portolan charts, it was always assumed, were compiled by medieval European mapmakers from contemporary sources. A Dutch doctoral dissertation now disproves this: these nautical charts are impossibly accurate, not just for medieval Europe, also for other likely sources, the Byzantines and the Arabs. So who made them – and when?

Apprendre la cartographie libre en ligne

Apprendre la cartographie libre en ligne | Map@Print | Scoop.it

Ces derniers mois, le projet Openstreetmap (OSM) a essaimé en Afrique, au Togo et au Burkina Faso notamment, en créant des antennes locales dont le fonctionnement est basé sur la principe du bénévolat. Les nouveaux mappeurs, cartographes amateurs pour la plupart du temps, sont formés à la prise en main de l'outil par les plus expérimentés.

 

En appui à cette initiative de formation, Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) a mis en ligne un site dédié à l'apprentissage pas à pas de la cartographie en ligne. La communauté de cartographes volontaires compte en effet des millions de membres de par le monde, comme on le constate en se rendant sur le site live openstreetmap, qui montre les changements opérés sur les cartes en temps réel.

Al Picozzi's comment, July 15, 2013 7:21 AM
Look like though it is a return to the original trade routes. Most of the world's trade was in the far east and the Indian Ocean up until about the 17th Century when the "New World" silver and the slave trade exploded in the west.
Maegan Connor's curator insight, December 17, 2013 9:49 AM

I love interactive maps because it gives thorough visuals of areas that don't always stick out.  This map is particularly cool because it's a view of the world's 50 largest ports that are used for international trade.  The ports themselves are massive and it is noticeable that the majority of them are in China and Southeast Asia where many of the world's goods are produced.  The U.S. has 4 ports on the list and while the NY and LA ones are expected, I was surprised to see Savannah as the fourth city. However, upon exploring it with the map, I can see how it is an extremely large port and is probably a main trade hub for the Southern U.S. 

The ports around the world are major contributors to globalization because trade is historically one of the biggest industries that connects countries all over the world through the exchange of raw and manufactured goods and materials.  Cargo ships are massive in size and can carry tons of goods around the world.  I remember going to the naval base in Norfolk and at the port, there were piles of cargo stacked six crates high being loaded onto a ship to be sent to anywhere in the world. Port cities are vitally important to international trade which is a major piece of the world's economy so the enormity of these parts is definitely necessary and really interesting to see in terms of design.
