Michael Pecirno's Minimal Maps Single Out American Land Use Patterns Most maps of the U.S. prioritize metropolitan areas. But "Minimal Maps" single out the nation's forests, crops, and waterbodies. Eighty percent of the U.S. population lives in "urban" areas, a staggering 249,253,271 souls. Yet these folks live in just 3 percent of the country's 2.3 billion acres of land. Most of America's 50 states are forestland (30 percent), pasture and ranges (27 percent), and crops (18 percent), with parks, tundra, and swamps making up the rest. These are statistics that never fail to blow my provincially urban mind—in part, perhaps, because most maps of the country visually prioritize metropolitan areas.

PBS - THE WEST - Lesson Plans Index Background Information Students will view the works and read the accounts of such painters as George Catlin (1796-1872), Albert Bierstadt (1830-1872), Thomas Moran (1837-1870), and Frederic Remington (1861-1909). The paintings of Bierstadt and Moran, and the documentary photographers influenced early conservation policy as well as the concepts of "Manifest Destiny" and an era of progress. Remington's work glorifies the cowboys and soldiers and demonizes the Indians, justifying their increasing elimination from the actual territories of the West. Although he traveled in the West and served as magazine correspondent and illustrator, his most popular paintings were rendered in a studio and relied upon posed models and props. Students will also compare and contrast the viewpoints of those artists with the work of pioneers of western photography, among them, the early daguerreo-typists (who went west to photograph the gold rush), adventurers and entrepreneurs.
