Comparing Urban Footprints | GeographyEducation.org | APHG GITNN | Scoop.it
This is a series of infographics (or geo-infographics) created by Matthew Hartzell, a friend of mine that I met when we were both geography graduate students at Penn State in few years back. I will allow him to explain the rest.“I created comparing the physical footprints of 54 cities around the world. They are presented side-by-side at the same scale, allowing the viewer to compare these cities in a new light.Among these 54 are some of the world’s major cities, at least a few from each world region. Chinese and US cities over-represented since those are my countries. Some smaller or lesser cities I threw in at random.In the first graphic the cities are arranged by size (or thereabouts…since the footprints are geometrically complex I had to eye-ball the approximate size). They are color-coded by world region. You’ll notice that all the top contenders are from the United States (surprise surprise). You’ll notice that when arranged in this fashion, there is no correlation to population.Click headline to read more and view infographics full screen--

The US federal government doesn’t recognize a material difference between GM and non-GM crops but Vermont will require all genetically modified foods carry labels from 2016. Scientist Michael Hansen of Consumers' Union discusses GM food safety with host Steve Curwood.”

Lee Miles's curator insight, May 4, 2014 9:58 AM

This reports notes that "As we practice our civility we could also contemplate our liberation from the demography of the past. There may be some clouds over the sunny uplands — no real story has a totally happy ending. But the prospect is far more pleasing than either a return to the nineteenth century or a journey to an overcrowded future blighted by demographic obesity. An older age structure is no disaster; like other advances in human well-being, it is one of our triumphs."
