Day vs. Night population maps

Day vs. Night population maps | population geography | Scoop.it

A great image for showing the pulsating rythmns of a dynamic urban system.  We treat population density as a static metric, but how many people are in a given place would truly be difficult to fully quantify.  What logisitic difficulties would this shift present for cities?

I would be interested to find out how these were created and how the data was recorded.

Lauren Sellers's curator insight, May 22, 2014 12:04 PM

This is an interesting little chart because it reveals to us which countries have the highest percentage of migrants that make up their general population. Definitely suprised me to see Qatar as the number one on the list, I would have expected the US to be at the top, but it is not even in the top 10!

This shows the net migration of immigrants. 

Adrian Bahan (MNPS)'s curator insight, September 30, 2014 4:04 PM

Remember this is based on a % of the total population, and not total #. Which countries have the most migrants per capita living there?  What spatial or development patterns do you see on this list?

Geovisualization of Migration Data

300.000 Norwegians move house every year. If the pattern made by this process could be compressed into one short animation, what would would it look like? What could you learn about your country from such an animation, if anything?

BandKids13-14's curator insight, September 16, 2013 8:29 PM

It is amazing how many people move each year to and from an area. You don't really see how much immigrants are in your country until you see it on a graph or video. Moving from place to place can be quite expensive. Not only have you just bought a house but you are paying people to help you move or paying rental companies for there vehicles. You might be happy because you're moving to a new location but, not because of the expenses. ~Makayla D

Anhony DeSimone's curator insight, December 18, 2013 10:16 PM

This animation shows the frequency or pattern as to how people migrate. You are able to see just how physically it looks when people are migrating from place to place. You are also allowed to learn as to why they are moving and literally get to see the movement of people leaving or coming into an area.

The Importance of Place

The Importance of Place | population geography | Scoop.it

Using the vocabulary of this course, please describe in detail the geographic context of a town like this (real or imaginary).  What is the town like?  How did it get that way?  What type of meaning does 'place' have for those that live there?
