People have been in the age of prehistoric times trying to draw their environment. In the beginning, only the forests around the cave and other surrounding places were included in these drawings, and as the traffic, the disciplines and the size of the known areas known, parallel increased rapidly, the maps we have known.
Modern cartography is linked to the name of Rumold Mercator; he made the first map collection. The collections of maps, of course, was still incomplete. There is no full map today since there are any advanced techniques available to explore, just think of the unknown waters of the oceans …
In any case, we can say that we love the maps.
The maps are not only good for geography but also for other global facts. Their store is almost inexhaustible. We can show population density, average temperature, precipitation, the per capita GDP, the number of births per capita… almost anything.
Color maps give us an aesthetic experience beyond carrying scientific knowledge.
Alastair Bonnett New views: The world’s Mapped Like Never Before works on the topic show some imaginative, scientific and beautiful maps showing the planet Earth in different aspects.
From these scientific and art-worthy maps, here are a few cheer-seekers (we will add more maps regularly):
NASA released the map below in November 2014. Its purpose is to show the distribution of planet-sunken celestial bodies using the data of the Near-Earth Object Observation Program. The map represents all perceived asteroid impacts that belong to the category 1-20 meters in diameter, i.e., the smallest celestial body.
Yellow spots are the daylight, while the blue indicates the nighttime impacts on the map. From these, it is clear that we can not hide from the asteroids because the impacts are spread evenly across the Earth's surface. ...continue reading "Asteroid strikes mapped"
In the twentieth century, before the Scandinavian kitchen and the various fusion kitchens (fusion cuisine, if we combine the culinary arts of different cultures, mix and try to create new dishes), has come to fruition, one of the leading powers of gastronomy was undoubtedly France.
The French are also proud of this and strive to maintain the memory of this period.
Classical French cuisine is varied and varied according to the size of the country and a large number of its regions. Well, yes, the French baguette, the croissant ..
But do not forget about the well-known onion soup, eclaire donut, Croque Monsieur sandwich, Coq au Vin (more simply red wine chicken), mustard rabbit on Ratatouille (This delicious single-piece is a great full-length Pixar animation film also commemorates (Ratatouille), if you have not seen it, I recommend it!), fish soup and snails.
The French are a proud nation, aware of their varied gastronomy, not appreciating the culinary art of the surrounding countries. In many cases, they are characterized by a word, property, and diet (funny, but also very seriously).
