These maps help show different patterns in the United States throughout different periods of American history such as during the Civil War, the locations of the first railroads, difference in the North and South, and also mapping the constitutional convention. it really help put it all in a geographical perspective. 

This helps create a focus on the movement of people, the "whys" of history, and the different political states and counties we have made over the years.

Use of geospatial technologies, such as GIS, remote sensing, global positioning systems (GPS), and online maps-

This article explains how GIS can be used multiple ways, whether it be in location, past, present, or predictions on the future. These GIS examples show how  the American Civil War and many other things would have been seen as.

This article demonstrates the use of geospatial technologies by showing how American history would be like if represented by GIS.

This is an interactive map that takes you along the routes of the real pirates of the Caribbean. These pirates sailed mainly along the Atlantic coast of the America's with some venturing further eastward. this maps shares the story of 5 famous pirates. Some pirates like William Parker, an Englishman made their living robbing Spanish treasure fleets.  other pirates like Blackbeard, known for his imposing size and black beard relied more on his reputation that continuous acts to strike fear into others. when Blackbeard pulled up, give up the treasure, HAHA. others like Henry Morgan went on to bigger things, Morgan became a lieutenant governor of Jamaica.

This pirate excursion map is so cool and gives a great look at the travels of different pirates.  As we get farther away from these time periods, it seems like the idea of these Caribbean pirates are fictional.  To hear true historical events about these individual pirates is very interesting.  I would  love to take a time machine back to Port Royal during these times to experience that madness.

Brian Wilk's curator insight, March 28, 9:34 AM

Imagine the horror a native of the Caribbean must have felt when white men came into their scenic lands and pillaged their villages and plundered their treasuries? Blackbeard otherwise known as Edward Teach, would light slow burning cannon fuses and place them in his beard to create an aura about him as he fought and raided these port of call. Calico Jack Rackham, a great pirate name if there ever was one, was best known for having  a pair of female pirates aboard. Instantly becomes one of my heroes! Then you have William Parker who was actually an opportunist backed by England who plundered Spanish treasures throughout Central America. Here is my favorite pirate joke; what is a pirate's favorite letter? "R" you say? No, it's the letter "C", pirates love the sea....

Transport technology is a key factor that assists the operation of Global networks

 

Alyssa Dorr's curator insight, September 10, 2014 3:11 PM

I found it interesting that one of the most busiest airports was in the US, in Atlanta to be exact. A lot of the airports that are included in this list of 25 were located in the US. Also, I noticed that there are no busy airports in Africa, South America, and Australia. I'm wondering if it is because not many people wish to travel there due to the climate and environment.

Edelin Espino's curator insight, September 10, 2014 3:26 PM

Is really good to know the busiest Airports because you would think that the number one is John F. Kennedy International Airport but it is not. The number one busiest airport in the world is the

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Nice job Dominik, Pascal, and Jack. Great to see how Proceedural has evolved with the acquistiion by ESRI (now 2-3 years ago). I'm glad ESRI has continued to take City Engine further. 

Love the swipe tool. Great urban planning tool.

ComplexInsight's curator insight, July 20, 2013 2:01 AM

ESRI's acquisition of CityEngine is probably one of the smartest tech acquisitions in the geospatial market in a long time. As the product and technology integration  rolls forward we get to see how very smart  the acquisition was.The WebGL publishing capabilities are very exciting for city planners.  Great video of highlights from the recent ESRI user group conference its great seeing how the products are evolving.

This was definitely an interesting reading. I believe @Spencer Levesque had a very good point. They all have similar features, but are different in little ways. And who would of thought someone came on New Years too?

I find it very interesting on how other countries precieve Santa Claus. The history on him, what he looks like, how he gets around, and what they call him. Each country perceives him differently, depending on their culture and history. His clothes, age, language, and personality.
