Mr. Burton, How did you add your information on this scoop it? I would love to do this!
Mr. David Burton's comment, July 16, 2014 6:21 PM
Mr. Gates, you create a new posting without a link to another source. Then just give it a title and type in your information. If you want it to permanently stay as the top post then you have to pin it in place.

Here are 40 maps that will help you better understand the internet — where it came from, how it works, and how it's used by people around the world.

Map - Amazonia

Map - Amazonia | World Geography | Scoop.it

Amazonia covers most of tropical South America east of the Andes Mountains. Primarily rainforest, the region includes some of the densest vegetation on Earth. This map shows average August plant density and greenness in South America. Beige areas indicate sparse vegetation, while dark green areas represent dense vegetation. NASA satellite vegetation maps revealed that the Amazon is greener in the dry season than the rainy season, defying conventional wisdom. (Map by Robert Simmon, based on data from the University of Arizona Terrestrial Biophysics and Remote Sensing Lab.)

Melissa Marie Falco-Dargitz's curator insight, September 17, 2014 2:00 PM

Noting that this will never happen, because even if the people of California put it to a vote, it would have to be endorsed in Congress, This plays into the study we had to do in class about segmenting the nation into regions. There is a distinct feel to each of these regions in California. There is a feeling of place to each region. “Jefferson” feels like it’s on a different planet from “South California.” Racial make up, economic disparity, political culture and geography are so different that it’s hard to believe you are in the same place.
