The History Engine is an educational project from the University of Richmond that is creating a collection of historical articles about life in the United States throughout its history. The History Engine includes a Google Maps based time-line that allows users to explore the project's history articles by date and by location. If you select a decade from the time-line states that have essays available from that decade are highlighted on the map. If you select a highlighted state the available essays can be accessed by clicking on the map markers that appear on the map. Via: @geoparadigm

Looking at the world via Google Earth offers striking images of the diversity of our planet and the impact that humans have on it. Today's entry is a puzzle -- part 2 in a series ( part 1 here ), in which we challenge you to figure out where in the world each of the images below was taken. (Unlike part 1, we're making this one multiple choice.) Note that north is not always up in these pictures. Also, be assured that, apart from a bit of contrast, these images are unaltered; they are exactly what Google and its mapping partners provide.
