An OverlapMap is a map of one part of the world that overlaps a different part of the world. OverlapMaps show relative size.
The above overlap map is the United Kingdom compared to the state of Pennsylvania. This is an very simple way to demonstrate the true size of remote places, and 'bring the discussion home.' This site is as simple and intuitive as it is powerful and easily applicable. This is a keeper.
The world is becoming more and more interconnected. Globalization changes how people consume, work and live almost everywhere on the world. Today, many economic, political, cultural or ecological relationships are not explainable from a national perspective. At the same time, a controversial debate about the consequences of globalization has begun.
Questions to ponder: What are the driving forces behind globalization? What areas are most impacted by globalization? How does globalization benefit some, and adversely impact others? Why?
