Boxes with zero people are given in white. Darker shades of red indicate higher population counts per box using a logarithmic interpolation. The highest density boxes appear in Mumbai, Mumbai with 11 11,687,850 687 850 people in the quarter degree block block, Calcutta (10 (10,816,010), 816 010) and Shanghai (8,628,088). 2003 Scientific Productivity Shown is where science is performed today. Each circle indicates a geographic location at which scholarly papers are published. The larger the circle the more papers are produced. Boston, MA, London, England, and New York NY are the top three paper production areas York, areas. Note the strong resemblance with the Night on Earth and the IP Ownership maps and the striking differences to the world population map. 2007 IP Address Ownership This map shows IP address ownership by location. Each owner is represented by a circle and the area size of the circle corresponds to the number of IP addresses owned. The larges circle denotes MIT’s holdings of an entire class A subnet, subnet which equates to 16,581,375 16 581 375 IP addresses. addresses The countries that own the most IP addresses are US (560 million), Japan (130 million), Great Britain (47 million).

What impact Large-scale, high resolution prints illuminated via projector or screen. Interactive touch panel. Contributions: Interactive, high resolution interface to access and make sense of data about scholarly activity. 48 Hands--on Science Maps for Kids Hands All maps of science are on sale via http://scimaps.org/ordermaps/ Science Puzzle Map for Kids by Fileve Palmer, Julie Smith, Elisha Hardy and Katy Börner, Indiana University, 2006. (Base map taken from Illuminated Diagram display by Kevin Boyack, Richard Klavans, and W. Bradford Paley.) Activities: Solve the puzzle. Navigate to ‘Earth Science’. Identify major inventions. Place major inventors. Find your dream job on the map. Why is mathematics important? Winners @ AMSE JoHanna Sanders, age 12, a picture of someone enjoying nature and a theme that science is all around us. Sascha Richey, age 8, drew a picture of her mother and explained why her mother is her favorite scientist. Where to go from here?
