Curriculum & Resources: Maps That Stretch the Mind

Curriculum & Resources: Maps That Stretch the Mind | Teaching History | Scoop.it

(Map above is based on population)

 

From the website

 

"Did you know that Africa is 14 times larger than Greenland? Or that the continental U.S. is actually smaller than Brazil? If you didn’t it’s with good reason—most of us learned our geography from a map that was designed for navigation, not for area accuracy.

 

"Every map is out of proportion in some way—it’s impossible to transfer a sphere to two dimensions without distortion—and each mapmaker chooses what to portray, depending on their agenda. ODT Maps’ mission is to teach people to see the world from a broader, more inclusive perspective, resulting in maps that show countries for their true size, and others with Australia up top—and why not?

 

"ODT Maps provides maps and resources to help people see that there are many ways to see the world—and a need for many maps!"
