    Update: Russia to join fight against ISIS

    So we’re fighting a world war, in case anyone was curious. Everyone scoffs when  say that until they see the maps

  7. From Wikipedia Picture Of The Day; September 20, 2014:

    The Cantino planisphere is the earliest surviving map showing Portuguese geographic discoveries in the east and west. Named after Alberto Cantino, who smuggled it from Portugal to Italy in 1502, the map includes a fragmentary record of the Brazilian coast as well as detailed depictions of African coasts. The map is also the earliest extant nautical chart where places (in Africa and parts of Brazil and India) are depicted according to their astronomically observed latitudes. It is now held at the Biblioteca Estense in Modena, Italy.

    John Matherly, founder of the search engine Shodan, pinged every online device in the world and created a map of their locations. He plans to repeat the process and track how the world changes over time. Source

    Of course, you say. Cartography is a science. What it describes should be there. And yet, I find myself a little surprised by our ability to measure, to extrapolate, to conjoin, to build a true whole from a gazillion little parts. It’s an enormous intellectual feat. And now, I’m happy to report, it’s been done again — on a scale that boggles my mind.

    This whole thing gave me chills.

    600 Million Years and Counting…

    I was pretty bored so I decided to make some GIFs of the last 600 million years of our planet’s plate tectonics.

    The first GIF is a global mollewide projection. The second one is of the Colorado Plateau and the North American Southwest. The next GIF is of the entire formation of the North American Continent. The fourth GIF is of geologic and tectonic evolution of Europe. And finally the last one is the same as the first except in rectangular format.

    I obtained the images from Global Paleogeography and them compiled them one by one into Photoshop with the end result being the above GIFs.

    Waited quite some time for these here gifs
