Discover Ancient Rome in Google Earth

"See Rome as it looked in 320 AD and fly down to see famous buildings and monuments in 3D. Select the 'Ancient Rome 3D' layer under Gallery in Google Earth."

Lou Salza's insight:

Amazing opportunity  for students to "see" Anciant Rome and explore monuments as they once looked and functioned.

Guardare l'antica Roma così come appariva nel 320 d.C. e volare giù per vedere edifici famosi in 3D. Seleziona 'Ancient Rome 3D'  nella Gallery di Google Earth.

It's astounding how modern technology can really take us back to ancient times to see how others not only lived but prospered.

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)?

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.
