Elizabeth Borneman explores how cartography and cartographic projections help and hinder our perception of the world.
"How do you think the world (starting with our perceptions) could change if the map looked differently? What if Australia was on top and the hemispheres switched? By changing how we look at a map we truly can begin to explore and change our assumptions about the world we live in."
Geography doesn’t just teach us about the Earth; it provides ways for thinking about the Earth that shapes how we see the world. Maps do the same; they represent a version of reality and that influences how we think about places.
"This animation distils hundreds of years of culture into just five minutes. A team of historians and scientists wanted to map cultural mobility, so they tracked the births and deaths of notable individuals like David, King of Israel, and Leonardo da Vinci, from 600 BC to the present day. Using them as a proxy for skills and ideas, their map reveals intellectual hotspots and tracks how empires rise and crumble. The information comes from Freebase, a Google-owned database of well-known people and places, and other catalogues of notable individuals. The team is based at the University of Texas at Dallas."
« J’ai la joie de participer de nouveau à ces plongées de scaphandrier que sont les missions de haute altitude. On s’enfonce, dans les territoires interdits, habillé d’instruments barbares, environné d’un peuple de cadrans. On respire au-dessus de sa propre patrie un oxygène fabriqué aux États-Unis. L’air de New York dans le ciel de France, n’est-ce pas étonnant ? On pilote ce monstre léger qu’est le Lightning P38 à bord duquel on a l’impression...
Ce portail FLE ayant pour vocation un apprentissage du français à travers les arts a été réalisé à la demande de Mme. Adriana Cazanel, directrice du Lycée "Spiru Haret" de Moinesti par deux étudiantes de Telecom SudParis - Meryem Bennani et Dalila Messedi - dans le cadre du projet "Cassiopée" dirigé par Mme. Joséphine Kohlenberg.
Les principaux symboles de la République française ont en commun une origine révolutionnaire. La devise nationale ; 'liberté, égalité et fraternité'; la fête nationale le 14 juillet, la Marseillaise, hymne national, le drapeau tricolore, la Déclaration des Droits de l'Homme et du Citoyen de 1789 et Marianne sont symboliquement nés lors de la Révolution française, en rupture avec l'Ancien régime et ses symboles (fleur de lys, drapeau blanc et or…). Quant au coq, c'est au latin Gallus -qui signifie à la fois coq et Gaule, que l'on doit son association à la symbolique française.
Many of Africa’s leaders will be in town next week attending a White House summit. The continent’s land is shared among 49 countries — many of which rarely make U.S. headlines. How familiar are you with Africa’s geography?
Scientists have issued a new warning to the world’s coastal megacities that the threat from subsiding land is a more immediate problem than rising sea levels caused by global warming.
A new paper from the Deltares Research Institute in the Netherlands published in April identified regions of the globe where the ground level is falling 10 times faster than water levels are rising - with human activity often to blame.
In Jakarta, Indonesia’s largest city, the population has grown from around half a million in the 1930s to just under 10 million today, with heavily populated areas dropping by as much as six and a half feet as groundwater is pumped up from the Earth to drink.
The same practice led to Tokyo’s ground level falling by two meters before new restrictions were introduced, and in Venice, this sort of extraction has only compounded the effects of natural subsidence caused by long-term geological processes.
As the climate shifts, rivers will both flood and dry up more often, according to the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Shortages are especially likely in parts of the world already strapped for water, so political scientists expect feuds will become even more intense. To track disputes worldwide, researchers at Oregon State University spent a decade building a comprehensive database of international exchanges—-both conflicts and alliances—over shared water resources. They found that countries often begin disputes belligerently but ultimately reach peaceful agreements. Says Aaron Wolf, the geographer who leads the project, “For me the really interesting part is how even Arabs and Israelis, Indians and Pakistanis, are able to resolve their differences and find a solution.”
