Gabbie J's curator insight, May 9, 2014 8:16 PM

If you have ever read the Hunger Games series , then you were probably curious on where the districts are located. These are some interpretations that other people have made to try and fulfill the Hunger Games fans needs for a conclusion . You could even see what district you would live in if you lived in Panem. 

Alyssa Dorr's curator insight, December 12, 2014 8:32 PM

I have never seen this movie, however my sister is very intelligent with every aspect of it. Panem is the country in which The Hunger Games takes place in both the book and the film. The country is separated into thirteen districts until the rebellion, reducing the number to twelve. Each district has their own job, as shown in this image. For example, one district promotes fishing, another agriculture, and also electricity. As one can see from this map, all the districts are shaped like the United States. According to my sister, Panem is classified as being the future United States. This is an interesting aspect if we think about it. One might think that from looking at this and knowing that it is going to be the "future US", that it appears that everyone will slowly drift apart and do their own thing. Everyone may end up being their own "district" in the future.

Tnanks! This map makes it easier to understand our world right now.
Steven Flis's curator insight, December 17, 2013 3:27 PM

My favorite part about this map has to be its unintentionaly demographich connecter (If that even makes sense) for example along the south east part of the united states their are alot of latin americans and on this map the two continents are brought closer to each other to match the cultural demogaphic. To continue this the east coast and dixie are have a massive african american population. and again the african continent is brought close to people who have ancestreal roots to it. I know that pangea is not the reason why each culture settled in its respetive area just funny how well that worked out.

Nations of the World

This is old enough that have been some changes to the political maps since this was produced 1993.  What listed countries would now be marked incorrect?  Which ones, even then would be politically contentious to categorize as a country?

Muy bueno!!
Malice in Wonderland's comment, February 21, 2012 7:10 PM
If this was made in 1993 then the people who made it had no real grasp of political-geography. For example the Soviet Union had been gone for 2 years by then, yet it is still shown on the map. To top it off the voice over refers to it as "Russia". How's that for pointing out at least 16 errors at once? (Yeah I mean 16, not 15. Not a mistake. Think about it)
Seth Dixon's comment, February 21, 2012 7:50 PM
The 15 former Socialist Republics were labeled as Russia under one map, but was it still the Commonwealth of Independent States in 1993? That could be your elusive 16th. Czechoslovakia, Sudan and Yugoslavia have all fragmented while Zaire and Kampuchea need a name upgrade to the Congo and Cambodia. Palestine and Taiwan are two that are still as nebulous as ever, very difficult to define.

This is a picture of our world and the real way that we are connected in real time from Facebook. It's amazing! Share this everywhere!

Maegan Connor's curator insight, December 17, 2013 12:23 PM

This map amazes me because of just how big Facebook has become after starting as a small site for college kids in the U.S. to connect on.  Now it is one of the largest contributing factors to globalization as it allows people from various continents to connect to others with a simple Internet connection.  It has helped people of different cultures come together and as we saw in class, it helps spread word of different political happenings that regular news media tries to hide from us.  

It's also really interesting to see how China is completely off the grid and so is central and Saharan Africa because in terms of modern day globalization, they are not areas that participate in many global affairs and with the prominence Facebook holds in today's world, the parts of the world that are missing are much stranger to us in cultural terms.

this is super cool. it reminds me of the images the Cassini satellite took from Saturn of the earth. it is very cool to see images of the earth from space because it seems to dwarf us in relativity to the universe.

Its incredible how much we can see on maps now a days. Our technology now a days never stops amazing me and this just shows how advanced we actually are in the technology field. This definitely takes maps too a whole new level.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, June 20, 2013 2:33 AM

For me exploring the neighborhoods of Redlands was incredibly nostalgic since it reminds me so much of the part of Burbank that I grew up in, but haven’t had much opportunity to visit since.  I left  Burbank, CA when I 11 and the next year the city’s landscapes became the set for the TV show “The Wonder Years.”  I was 12 just like Kevin Arnold was, and despite a serious lack of Winnie Cooper in my youth, the show still resonates with me as does the Southern California landscape.

I have linked to the WomanStats Project in the past because their global datasets and maps are perfect for get students to explore a potential topic that might be of interest to them.  I'm resharing this now because they have recently updated their maps page to include 28 statistical measures to indicate the status of women around the world (including this one on the gendered discrepancy of access to secondary education).  The WomanStats Project provides important data and maps regarding issues of gender, access and equity with a spatial perspective.
