Springtime

So as someone who has always loved maps, here’s an article on some new maps created by the U.S. Geological Survey regarding spring and when it arrived this year. The article is entitled “Where is spring arriving early this year? by Mary Jo DiLonardo over at the Mother News Network. While maps are a good thing, the news associated with these maps isn’t necessarily all good.

Maps & migration

There’s nothing I like better a good than a map and an article on migration. This article entitled “One Glorious Map Shows the Future of Animal Migrations ” over at LiveScience has it covered on both accounts with this amazing visual map. Too cool!

From ice to clouds

Speaking of maps, here’s an article I found on cloud maps. The article is entitled “New maps shed light on the secret lives of clouds over at the Grist and cross-posted from Climate Central. Gotta love those maps and those clouds.

Maps, maps, I love maps

Asked I said before, I love maps. So when I came across this article entitled “NASA to 3D map the world’s forests using space lasers , I knew I had to post it. So with all the talk on climate change and carbon dioxide, this seems like the perfect fit for NASA. At least until they start to look back into space.

Two maps in one (post)

I don’t often post about two articles but tonight I’ve decided too, in large part because they both include maps. The first article, entitled “First ever digital geologic map of Alaska by the United States Geological Survey and over at Science Daily, has an awesome map and as I think I’ve said before, I do love maps.

The other article, while not about a map, does have a pretty cool map that goes along with it. It’s entitled “Intriguing Seismic Activity along the Cascadia Subduction Zone” by Dana Hunter and also over at Science Daily. Like her, I’m sort of a geology junkie too.

From maps to food

Okay, this post started out  as one on maps but turned into one on food. So how did I get there?

I started out with this article on maps, gearing it towards those who like to find and use local food, the article “Mapping the Government’s Local Food Work as a Way to Keep it Alive” over at the Grist by Tom Laskaway. It actually gives us a couple of website that help leadyou in the right direction to find your local farmer’s market.

I found the one entitled Know Your Food, Know Your Food Compass was good at giving you maps to locate your local markets and local food while Real Time Farms was good at giving the street addresses, websites and hours of the individual markets. Seems to me if you combine the two, that would be ideal.

And I ended up on food because ever since  I edited the contact information for my local farmers market at Local Harvest , I’ve been receiving e-mails (including today) from them periodically.

I also remembered to water my garden tonight.

Bon Appetit!

Maps/pictures

For today, I thought I would just post a  few maps/pictures that I’ve come across (mostly at Treehugger) on a variety of topics the last few months.

First there is this map over at National Geographic entitled “Photo: Pollution Prevalent in U.S. West’s National Parks“.

Next, this map called “A Picture is Worth…Ocean Deserts Expanding” by Tim McGee at Treehugger is a little scary to say the least.

Then there’s this map entitled “A Picture is worth…Access to Drinkable Water Around the World (And Much More)” by Jeremy Elton Jacquot again at Treehugger.

Finally, here’s an interesting map entitled “Migratory Bird Flyways and Off-Shore Wind Farms: A Co-Evolutionary Overlap” by John Laumer and yes, it’s also at Treehugger.
