Map of Global Transportation Networks & The Anthropocene

Environmental education organization, Globaïa, have prepared two interesting visualizations.

The first is a map of global transportation networks that shows traffic routes by road, air and sea converging on major urban areas.



The second is a collection of charts showing a variety of measures of global human activity.  All exhibit a more-or-less exponential growth pattern.
