Explore old maps of US cities

Explore old maps of US cities | Notebook | Scoop.it

"This cool new historic mapping app from the folks at esri and the U.S. Geological Survey is worth exploring.  What it does is take 100 years of USGS maps and lets you overlay them for just about any location in the nation. That allows users to see how a city – say Harrisburg – developed between 1895 and today.  The library behind the project includes more than 178,000 maps dating from 1884 to 2006."

PIRatE Lab's curator insight, August 13, 2014 12:25 PM

For more ESRI maps that let you explore urban environmental change, the 'spyglass' feature gives these gorgeous vintage maps a modern facelift (but not available for as many places). The cities that are in this set of interactive maps are: 

 

Chicago (1868)Denver (1879) Los Angeles (1880)Washington D.C.(1851)New York City (1836)San Francisco (1859)

This sounds like it would be really cool. I'm interested in being able to see how cities and roads have developed over  time. You can look at places where people might have migrated across the land. It amazes me that they have 178,000 old maps included in their library from 1884 to 2006..

is a personal Notebook

Gilbert Faure au nom de l'ASSIM's insight:

... designed to collect posts and informations I found and want to keep available but not relevant to the other topics I am curating on Scoop.it (on behalf of ASSIM):

 

the most sucessful being

Immunology, teaching and learning immunology

From flow cytometry to cytomics

 

followed by

Nancy, Lorraine because I am based at Université Lorraine in Nancy

Wuhan, Hubei, because we have a long standing collaboration through a french speaking medical training program between Faculté de Médecine de Nancy and WuDA, Wuhan university medical school and Zhongnan Hospital

and

Immunology and Biotherapies, a page of resources for the DIU Immunologie et Biothérapies

CME-CPD, because I am at EACCME in Brussels, representative of the medical biopathology and laboratory medicine UEMS section

Mucosal Immunity, because it was one of our main research interest some years ago 

 

It is a kind of electroinic scrapbook with many ideas shared by others. thanks to them

Les 8 "prédictions":

Prevalence and Correlates of Physical Inactivity among Older Adults in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil

Prevalence and Correlates of Physical Inactivity among Older Adults in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil | Notebook | Scoop.it
by Adelle M. R. Souza, Gerda G. Fillenbaum, Sergio L.
Gilbert Faure au nom de l'ASSIM's insight:

Physical inactivity is increasing rapidly worldwide, with substantial variability across regions, and as a function of gender and age [3]. This is particularly so in China and Brazil, which have the two highest absolute and relative rates of decline in total physical activity, and some of the higher increases in sedentary time [4]. Physical inactivity is a recognized risk factor for health, having been found to be associated with a wide range of health problems particularly prevalent in the elderly, including type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, colon and breast cancer, all cause mortality, and premature death [5–9]. There are indications that physical inactivity disproportionately affects ethnic minorities (in particular those of African descent), women and lower socioeconomic groups [10]. In line with these findings, regular physical activity is associated with risk reduction of diseases and of all cause mortality [6,11]. Other benefits include relief of symptoms of depression [12], and increased perception of wellbeing, self confidence and better quality of life [13].
