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).

This online game where you return the "misplaced" country on the map is more than just an exercise in locating places (there are many online map quizzes for that sort of activity).  What makes this one unique is that as you move the country north or south the country expands or contracts according to how that country would be projected if that were its actual location on a Mercator map.  This is a great way to introduce projections.

Great site to show projection and changes in perception on maps.
