Megacities Interactives

Megacities Interactives | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"By 2025, the developing world, as we understand it now, will be home to 29 megacities. We explore the latest UN estimates and forecasts on the growth of these 'cities on steroids', and take a look at the challenges and opportunities megacities present for the tens of millions living in Lagos, Mexico City and Dhaka."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, October 27, 8:53 AM

Through this BBC interactive mapping feature with rich call-out boxes, the reader can explore the latest UN estimates and forecasts on the growth of megacities (urban areas with over 10 million residents).  These 'cities on steroids' have been growing tremendously since the 1950s and present a unique set of geographic challenges and opportunities for their residents.   Also, this Smithsonian Magazine interactive (also on the rise of Megacities), argues that dealing with megacities is one of the traits of the Anthropocene. 


Download the BBC data as a CSV file to be able to import this into a customizable ArcGIS online map.  This will help you to create an analytical storymap (but I still enjoy a good narrative storymap).

A number of the high profile 'one laptop per learner' projects have now reached new phases of development, and new sets of large scale educational laptop programs are being announced. At the same time, 'educational tablets' have gone from a curiosity and novelty in some education systems to become the primary computing devices meant for students and teachers in others.

Joy Kinley's curator insight, October 28, 1:44 PM

Climate has impacted where civilizations grow and thrive.  Temperate climates with long growing seasons can support more life and cities can develop.  In places where there are harsh temperatures and short growing seasons not as many people can be supported.

In winter when we have cold days (I know there aren't that many cold days in the southern U.S. but we do get some) I like to check the weather for northern Canada because my weather suddenly sounds much more pleasant.

Jake Red Dorman's curator insight, October 29, 2:50 PM

Its obvious to see that all the major cities in Canada are in areas with the least coldest regions. They are as close to the border of the U.S. as possible because it is as close to the equator as possible without being a U.S. city. Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, Winnipeg, Calgary, Regina and Vancouver are all about 100-150 km away from the border of the U.S.

Maria Persson's curator insight, October 30, 8:44 PM

This magazine supplies interesting data on the way in which teachers (overseas) are addressing the way in which pedagogy has had to change to ensure their students are being given every advantage possible! The narratives are thought provoking and further links are provided so the reader can continue to scope the journey of the various authors.
