Wind Map An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future. This map shows you the delicate tracery of wind flowing over the US. The wind map is a personal art project, not associated with any company. We've done our best to make this as accurate as possible, but can't make any guarantees about the correctness of the data or our software. Please do not use the map or its data to fly a plane, sail a boat, or fight wildfires :-) If the map is missing or seems slow, we recommend the latest Chrome browser. Surface wind data comes from the National Digital Forecast Database. If you're looking for a weather map, or just want more detail on the weather today, see these more traditional maps of temperature and wind.

Wild Areas Introduction This collection has been superceded by the Last of the Wild, Version 2. Human influence on the earth’s land surface is a global driver of ecological processes on the planet, on par with climatic trends, geological forces and astronomical variations. The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) at Columbia University joined together to systematically map and measure the human influence on the earth’s land surface today. Our analysis indicates that 83% of the earth's land surface is influenced directly by human beings, whether through human land uses, human access from roads, railways or major rivers, electrical infrastructure (indicated by lights detected at night), or direct occupancy by human beings at densities above 1 person per square kilometer. We refer to the human influence on the land’s surface measure as the "Human Footprint."

Stunning Subjectivity: Paula Scher's Obsessive Hand-Painted Maps by Maria Popova An irreverent, artful antidote to GPS appification, or what the NYC subway has to do with tsunamis. Iconic designer Paula Scher is one of my big creative heroes, her thoughts on combinatorial creativity a perfect articulation of my own beliefs about how we create. Since the early 1990s, Scher has been creating remarkable, obsessive, giant hand-painted typographic maps of the world as she sees it, covering everything from specific countries and continents to cultural phenomena. I began painting maps to invent my own complicated narrative about the way I see and feel about the world. (Cue in cartograms.) A foreword by Simon Winchester contextualizes Scher’s maps as cultural objects, and an introduction by Scher herself offers a peek inside the mind and personal history that sprouted her cartographic creativity. A Paula Scher map is both detached from reality and yet at the same time becomes an entirely new reality, one that manages to be useless and essential all at once.

Revue Education relative à l'environnement Entrée territoire Cold weather person, or hot weather lover? Here in Washington, the weather has been flat-out drop-dead, absolutely, positively, 100 percent, gorgeous this past weekend. We're talking highs in the low 70s, abundant sunshine, and no humidity to speak of. Perfection! It was the first day in several months where you could actually turn off your A/C, throw open the windows, and air out the summer funk your home has been accumulating since, oh, May or so. Which got me thinking: wouldn't it be great if the weather were like this every day? So I dug up some 30-year temperature averages maintained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to find out which places in the country had the most days where the average high temperature was right around that 70 degree mark. So that's what I built! Here's what I found out: I decided that an ideal high temperature range for me is between 60 and 75 degrees -- any cooler than that and you might need the heat on at night.
