50 Faces in Everyday Places

50 Faces in Everyday Places | Mr Tony's Geography Stuff | Scoop.it

  Have you ever looked at an object or building and thought, "hey that kind of looks like a face!"? It's actually a psychological phenomenon known as pareidolia. Pareidolia involves a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant; it’s a form of apophenia (seeing meaningful patterns or connections in random or meaningless data).

Really interesting to watch this. It would fascinating to look at the how the hashtags change over time and whether you could show a relationship between them and news stories and events.

This links to a page where tweets on Twitter are tracked in real time and displayed on a dot map.

 

Questions: What regions have the most tweets? Do you think there are differences between what people tweet about in one part of the world versus another? What can you infer about the areas where there are no tweets reported?

People may have already seen this. If you haven't, quite simply, this is amazing. Whenever I show students they are transfixed by it. It is actually a thing of rare beauty.

A supervolcano forming north of New Zealand could spell the end of the world - but there is no need to panic, it won't happen for at least 100 million years.
Tony Hall's insight:

This is cool! Not that I want the world to end, but this is the kind of information that makes me love being a Geogrphy teacher!
