Over time, I’ve been collating a list of websites that are some of the best (or coolest) resources for geography, biology and ecology.
Datashine -The 2011 census, geolocated and mapped for multiple different census datasets.
NullSchool -Mapping of the world, showing meteorological flows and ocean currents.
Ventusky -Similar to NullSchool, although on a flat projection. Generally slightly easier to use than NullSchool.
Windy.com -Weather patterns emerging over the next 5 days, with forecasts and animated maps.
CO2 levels -Looks at atmospheric carbon dioxide and the change over the past ~260 years.
Fairness on the 83 -Fascinating human geography on inequality in Sheffield, and the changes in life expectancy over the route of the 83 Bus.
GeoLibrary -365 days of geographical books, covering all topics geographical!
London Tree Map -London’s trees mapped, by species.
Ecology & Environmental Science
ISpot -Citizen science project to identify and map species.
Hunt the Moth -A fun game where you have to find the camouflaged moth as fast as possible.
Cloud Atlas -An international atlas of different types of cloud, by the World Meteorological Organization. Used to describe and define different types of cloud.
And finally, data presentation…
FT Interactive -Visual vocabulary, but interactive!
