L’Afrique, si la colonisation n’avait pas eu lieu A quoi ressemblerait l’Afrique, si la colonisation n’avait pas eu lieu ? Cette carte, réalisée par l’artiste suédois Nikolaj Cyon, fait partie des 40 projections étonnantes que vient de sélectionner le Washington Post. La carte, datée de 1844, est imaginaire : l’auteur a cherché à dessiner ce qu’aurait pu être l’Afrique si l’Europe avait été suffisamment affaiblie pour ne pas reconquérir l’Espagne et la Sicile et coloniser le continent. Dans son scénario, la peste noire, en 1353, aurait tué quatre Européens sur cinq, affaiblissant durablement le continent du nord.

To fill this gap, we have gathered a great and informative selection of infographical maps that they should’ve shown us at school: every single one of these maps reveals different fun and interesting facts, which can actually help you draw some pretty interesting conclusions. What makes infographical maps so engaging is how easy it becomes to conceive graphically presented information. The best part, there are brilliant services like Target Map that “allow everyone (from individuals to large organizations) to represent their data on maps of any country in the world and to share their knowledge with the whole Internet Community.”
Can Participatory Mapping Save the Commons? - Shareable Can Participatory Mapping Save the Commons? - Shareable Top image: Transition Network. Never before, not when Ortelius began collecting the images of the New World in his Antwerp workshop, not during the explosion of maps for railway tourists in the nineteenth century, did so many maps fly around the world so quickly. Mapping once was an arcane art, the practice of a few trained business or government data analysts; now we have a virtual cottage industry of map-makers.

This map shows what America would look like if it followed its watersheds. It's an America designed to use water more efficiently, and reduce state conflicts over water. Think state conflicts over water aren't a big deal? Then you don't know that Georgia, Florida, and Alabama are engaged in a massive battle over their water sources. There's a similar situation in the dry Southwest.

La carte de l’Afrique cachée aux Africains depuis 600 ans Par Jean-Paul Pougala sur Pyepimanla.blogspot.fr. Afin que nul ne l´ignore plus. La carte géographique officielle du Monde est celle réalisée en 1569 selon la projection dite de Mercator (du nom de son auteur, le Belge Gerardus Mercator), est une carte fausse.
