Thank you @APHumanGeog for: Video tutorial: How to use geteach.com

This provies the basic overview of the layout and function of http://geteach.com .  The video unlocks some great features that are not intended to be hidden, but many first time visitors tend to miss.

 

This is a phenomenal site, designed by an AP teacher to bring geospatial technologies into the classroom in a way that is incredibly user-friendly. This site allows you to use Google Earth with clickable layers. With multiple data layers of physical and human geography variables, this interactive globe puts spatial information in powerful, yet fun, student-inspired platform.

TY! @APHumanGeog for #6 Worldmapper: The world as you've never seen it before

TY! @APHumanGeog for #6 Worldmapper: The world as you've never seen it before | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it

"Worldmapper is a collection of world maps, where territories are re-sized on each map according to the subject of interest."

 

#6 on the Top 10 list of 2011 resources is this mapping website that provides us with another way to present global datasets in a way that is more visually appealing and more intuitive to analyze and interpret the patterns.  Among the many compelling cartograms on this site is this one showing the prevalance of HIV, highlighting the disproportionate impacts of AIDS/HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa.

TY @APHumanGeog for a very cool ap: Map My Followers

TY @APHumanGeog for a very cool ap: Map My Followers | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it

This is not on the Top 10 list, only because it receives my "Best Geography Twitter App of the Year Award."  This is a great site that combines the power of geography, social media and geospatial technologies.  You can map where your twitter followers are (if they make the data publicly available).  Additionally, you can pan, zoom and identify specific followers and map their networks.  Can you find yourself on this map (followers of @APHumanGeog)?
