This map is beautiful - so many flags!

Thanks +Vicky Veritas 
 
I love this article by +Los Angeles Public Library written by map librarian +glen creason and highlighting this great 1936 map of the many flags that have flown on California soil. One fun thing I learned is that San Jose served as the capitol of California in 1850 when it first gained statehood. Wikipedia concurs and give more great history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Jose,_California

Thank you, +glen creason!
Argentinians, Russians, Spaniards, and Mexicans all claimed land along the Pacific Coast before it became a part of the United States

Wow - this map animation from NASA shows the increased density of infrastructure in and around Beijing.

Thanks, +John Poteet 
 
IMAGES OF CHANGE: Growing Beijing, China (2000 to 2009)

A new study shows that Beijing’s physical infrastructure quadrupled between 2000 and 2009 and that the new buildings and roads themselves—not including pollution created by new inhabitants and their vehicles—increased winter temperatures by about 5 to 7 °F (3 to 4 °C) and reduced wind speed by about 2 to 7 miles per hour (1 to 3 meters per second), making the air more stagnant. Gray and black indicate buildings, with the tallest and largest buildings in the city’s commercial core appearing lighter gray. Other colors show changes in areas not yet urbanized (for example, cutting down trees). Blue-green indicates the least change, yellow-orange more change and red the greatest change.

About our 'Images of Change':

Our 'Images of Change' gallery features images of different locations on planet Earth, showing change over time periods ranging from centuries to days. Some of these effects are related to climate change, some are not. Some document the effects of urbanization, or the ravage of natural hazards such as fires and floods. All show our planet in a state of flux.

Oh no!
 
"Yeah, yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should."

For all the jokes out there about sentient robots subjugating the human race, we do a pretty good job ruining things for ourselves. Sealed Air Corp., the original creator of bubble wrap and modern joy, is introducing a new packing material design called iBubble Wrap. And the bubbles don't pop....

Happy Friday, plussers!
I have very little to say about this map, except how wonderful is it that one of the famous Kevin's is actually a Brian.

I'm quite tempted to make a map of Kristinography now :)
Would you pay to go see <em>Kevin and Juliet</em>?

Geoscience Australia is a sponsor again this year - and I am mentoring again, too.
I can't see what people create!

+Chris Martinez _religion_ is not respectful. Especially when pushed on children.

There, fixed it for you.

Nobody is trying to force people to be gay. All people want is equality. Thankfully they're getting it across the globe now.
