Interactive maps are a great way to help students learn and explore information.
Show is an engaging website that allows visitors to explore the US and the World comparing states and countries through statistics and demographics and displays the information visually. The data is so up-to-date that the US maps show a comparison for stimulus and stimulus impact. When you are finished creating your map, you can download the data as an Excel file, save your maps as image files, and/or embed your image in other sites. While data can always be presented in different ways, Show is a great starting point for discussion and demographic study.
Show would be a great starting point for sociology, geography, history, government and math courses.
