Digitala kartor och källkritik Digitala kartor förändrar undervisningen Den digitala tekniken har fullständigt revolutionerat användningen av kartor, inte minst inom skolans undervisning. Tidigare var vi lärare hänvisade till de väggkartor som råkade finnas i klassrummet, de kartböcker skolan hade köpt in, de kartbilder som fanns i läroböckerna samt de köpta eller egenhändigt tillverkade overhead-bilder vi hade tillgång till. Antalet möjliga kartor att studera i klassrummet var därför starkt begränsat. Genom internet och annan digital teknik har både lärare och elever tillgång till ett mycket stort antal kartor från i stort sett hela världen på ett sätt som var helt otänkbart tidigare. Kompletterar de tryckta kartorna Kartor i tryckta böcker (till exempel en skolatlas eller en lärobok) följer oftast en gemensam standard när det gäller layout, färger och symboler, något som underlättar förståelsen. Hur kan vi bedöma trovärdigheten? Även kartor kan innehålla värderingar Manipulering av digitala kartor

40 maps that explain the world By Max Fisher By Max Fisher August 12, 2013 Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. So when we saw a post sweeping the Web titled "40 maps they didn't teach you in school," one of which happens to be a WorldViews original, I thought we might be able to contribute our own collection. Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable. A majority are original to this blog, with others from a variety of sources.

Atlas for a Changing Planet Understanding natural and human systems is an essential first step toward reducing the severity of climate change and adapting to a warmer future.

32 maps that will teach you something new about the world EVER THOUGHT TO YOURSELF, “How many smaller countries could you fit into Australia?” Or possibly, “Which countries in the western hemisphere have legit secessionist movements?” Or, perhaps most pressing of all, “Where does it pay best to be a lifeguard?” We live in the age of the map now, so these are no longer questions you have to continue simply wondering about. Maps are spectacular at conveying a lot of information in a simple image. h/t: Thanks to the MapPorn subreddit for being a great resource for both finding maps and for getting criticism and analysis of those maps.

The #1 reason people die early, in each country You're probably aware that heart disease and cancer are far and away the leading causes of death in America. But globally the picture is more complicated: (Vox / Anand Katakam and Joss Fong) It's worth stressing that "cause of lost years of life" and "cause of death" aren't identical. But that makes the fact that heart disease is the leading cause of lost life in so many countries all the more striking, and indicative of those countries' successes in reducing childhood mortality.
