I’ve posted more than usual this past week and so, to spare my readers too much stress and strain, I’m going to keep this week’s Map Monday nice and light. No history lessons, no cultural or ideological discussions, just a few intriguing perspectives on maps and the planet we live on. Enjoy.
World showing where today’s countries would/might be located on Pangea (the supercontinent that formed around 270 million years ago and slowly broke up into the continents we know today starting sometime around 70 million years ago).
World if someone long ago had decided to call the North Pole the South Pole and vice versa. Some people call this Australians’ view of the world.
The time zones in Antarctica. I bet you never thought about this. And Canadians think they have it bad with 5 time zones (4 hours difference plus a half hour earlier in Newfoundland!)
Map of the world, as viewed by whales. Thanks for sharing, Anne Rimmer.
Africa in perspective. An effective way to get a better feel for the large size of this important continent.
