This is an incredible visualization of the world's shipping routes

This is an incredible visualization of the world's shipping routes | Navigate | Scoop.it

"Ships carry 11 billion tons of goods each year. This interactive map shows where they all go.  About 11 billion tons of stuff gets carried around the world every year by large ships. Clothes, flat-screen TVs, grain, cars, oil — transporting these goods from port to port is what makes the global economy go 'round.  And now there's a great way to visualize this entire process, through this stunning interactive map from the UCL Energy Institute."

Putting America On The Map | History Today

Putting America On The Map | History Today | Navigate | Scoop.it
In April 1507, 15 years after Columbus landed on the island of Hispaniola and became the first documented European to reach the Americas, the German cartographers Martin Waldseemüller and Matthias Ringmann published a map that attempted to reflect the dramatic geographical discoveries of the era. Titled Universalis Cosmographia, the vast map measured eight feet across and was the result of a multi-year project that used information provided from many different sources, among them the voyages of Amerigo Vespucci, a Florentine explorer who in 1501-02 sailed down the coast of South America. Vespucci was also said to have sailed to Brazil in 1497, a claim that was almost certainly untrue but one that the publicity-hungry explorer was keen to exploit. It worked: in 1503 Ringmann spent some time in Italy, where Vespucci's exploits were a popular topic, and when the time came to annotate the map, they labelled the continent 'America' in the Italian's honour. Though the cartographers later realised their mistake ('America' was gone from an updated version published in 1513), the name stuck.
