Treeless suburbs, concrete canyons increase city heat

Treeless suburbs, concrete canyons increase city heat | Population | Scoop.it
When Sydney swelters, not all suburbs suffer evenly. An environment dominated by built canyons of concrete and vast tracts of asphalt, devoid of trees and cooling winds, could be heating up its own micro-climate - costing businesses and taking a toll on health.

Mapping Where People Run

Mapping Where People Run | Population | Scoop.it

"Inspired by a 2011 project that mapped popular running routes in a few European cities, Nathan Yau at FlowingData has done the same for 22 major cities, including 18 in the U.S.   To make these maps, Lau simply grabbed public data from the exercise-tracking app RunKeeper. While these visualizations are not representative of all runners in a city, they do offer useful information on urban spaces. For one, we see that people really do love running near water and in parks.  Here’s a selection of Yau’s work. See the rest here."

AHS Model UN's curator insight, November 19, 2015 2:13 PM

Population growth in an important topic that is connected to economic development.  If you've seen Hans Roslings TED talks, this is an hour-long version of many of the same concepts and data visualizations.  His Gapminder data visualization tool, it is a must see for geography teachers to show the connections between population statistics and developmental patterns--let students see the data.  This is an article that looks at a different factor, arguing that overpopulation isn't the real issue.
