Wall Map Closet

The Wall Map Closet contains a series of large format computer maps that may be downloaded and reproduced for use on classroom walls. They are meant to inform small children in instructional settings. As a result, they may lack some details commonly found on much more expensive commercial products. It is my intention to update the maps as time allows and instructors offer their ideas.

Rocks And Dirt – Geology And Soil Maps Of The US And World

I love dirt. And I love the maps that show them. A good geology map is visually like a weird hybrid between a Peter Max poster and Jackson Pollock drip painting, but also tells a story spanning several billion years of Earth’s history. I’ve found a few websites where you can find and download geology maps in a variety of formats.

The National Geologic Map Database, run by the United States Geological Survey, catalogues maps and geologic names, and also describes what mapping is currently underway. Here’s a screenshot of an online geology map accessed through this website, just south of Barstow, California: For geology mapping of the US and the rest of the world, try the Interactive Mapping Tool at Cornell’s Geoscience Information System pages. And when rocks die, they become dirt.
