Now here's an interesting activity for students!

Now THIS is geographical food for thought! Talk about conquering a nation!

I love that! It's so creative. Whoever came up with the idea to do this as an advertisement for the international food festival did a great job. They all look so delicious. Food festivals are a great way to experience other cultures.

The Human Head as a Mercator Projection

The Human Head as a Mercator Projection | riavaluoS | ACCI SRL | Scoop.it
Such an ordinary object, yet so disturbingly presented…...


While we accept spatial distortion as a given in geographic projections, it is striking how much it alters reality when the same distortion in applied to the human head...worth showing when discussion mapping and projections.

I thought this was a good visual to demonstrate how you cannot just take a global map and just flatten it. You do not get the same scale and accurate description of the globe. While it may show multiple of the land features, the land features get distorted.

Seeing a human face spread out this way makes me now realize that a 2-D map is not a real interpretation of the world. But at the same time this is more of a strange picture than when a globe is flattened out. I guess we are more used to seeing a globe flattened out.
