It seems that most of the world is covered in human activity. Big chunks of areas such as Australia,Russia,and greenland all have little impact from humans. Very likely because of extreem cold and lack of huntable food. Judging from the map 3/4 of the globe is covered with lots of human objects.

This map is about the pollution or "human footprint" man has put on the surface of the earth. I knew this because I looked at the themes and saw that the human footprint setting was highlighted. In conclusion, the map has the same patterns on a weather raidar. places like chicago and detroit had a large purple area around them. and other smaller spots around the country. this is a problem. we have to preserve this country so many more generations can enjoy it as we do

The map is a population map. I know this because i looked at the colors and it was purple in more populated areas and was green for less populated area and yellow was moderate. It is a map about populated areas.

This map is about how humans have impacted the world. Also, it has some things that are natural . I know this because most all of the catergories have to do with humans. I can conclude from this map that the humans have really changed the planet in good and bad ways even though most are bad.

This map is about the impact we have made in our world. It shows you the places we have impacted like the cities and the places we haven't impacted as much, like the middle of Quebec which is all green (least impacted) well Europe is covered with the colors of impact. The conclusions I've concluded with are, where all the purple places are, they're in the center of big cities and developments. The green is the untouched areas where it's very hard to establish a city there.
It was a very cool map!

This map is all about how humans have really impacted the world. I know that because on the map that I noticed that there was a lot of purple (purple colored places have the most impact). In conclusion most cities have the most impact on the earth and the northern part of Canada

This map is about water,land,climate,population and culture, environment and society all over the world.

I know this because it is listed next to the map and if you click on one it will appear on the map and show you comparisons.

I can make a conclusion that most of the earthquakes that occur in North America and South America are on the west side.

Few areas remain unaffected by humans. Humans built things like buildings, factories and many more. that have affected the earth. I know that because on the map it said "few areas remain that have not been affected by human activity." I never imagined that the things we build can effect the world. I learned that what people build (and dig) can effect ecosystems.

1. This map is about the human system in the world.
2. I know because the key shows the population,culture the time zone and a lot other things about the human race.
3. My conclusion would be that there has been a lot of impact on more than half of the world because of humans.

This is a map of permanently altered ecosystems and i know that because if you look at the key right above the actual legend it tells you exactly what it says above. After playing around with this map i discovered that the epicenter of permanently altered ecosystems are big cities such as New York city, Dallas, Atlanta, Houston etc.

This map is about how big a "footprint" or a difference humans have made in the world's environments. I know that beacause the key says "human progress and development have permanatly altered ecosystems around the world. Few areas reamain that have not been affected by human activity. Euorpe is the most human effected ecosystem so I'm guessing that there are a lot of big citys in each country.

I think that the map is showing how explorers traveled and discovered parts of our world. I can also see that it could show that there are so many people in this world. I know that because there is just a globe with a huge footprint on it that covers so much of the world. I think the conclusion shows that people still explore our world and continue to travel through our nation/world and our population continues to grow.

This map shows what parts of the world are impacted by humans. I know that because I looked at the key and saw which areas are most affected and which areas are least affected by humans. I found out that the southern parts of North America and the eastern parts of North America are most affected by humans. I also found out that pretty much the whole northern part of the world is not really affected by humans. I think that it is because fewer people want to live where it is cold. The world is also impacted by humans in the western part of Europe. I think that this may be because these populated areas may have more jobs and factories, which means there is less space for farming, animals, and ecosystems.

I can identify this map as showing the impact of humans to there ecosystems from the Key. I have found that dense population and the popular tourist location seamed to be the most impacted, because in order to support and comfort millions of people takes up land resources and attractions or businesses. Also the impacted areas clump near the equator were the weather is most pleasant.

This map is about the human footprint and it shows the different areas that have been impacted. Some places have been more impacted than others. I read the key and it showed me which areas are most impacted. They used different colors to show me which places are more impacted than others. On the key it also explained what the human footprint is. I have concluded that there are parts of Europe and Asia that are greatly impacted. Also eastern North America has a large impact. I have also concluded Australia and Africa isn’t as impacted.

The map is about how the people have affected the ecosystem of the world. I know this because the legend showed the different levels of human impact. I conclude that areas with higher population like eastern US, Europe and India have had more effect on the ecosystem. Also mountain and desert areas have had their ecosystems less effected because there are not a lot of people living there.

The Map is about what places in the world where more or less impacted by humans. I know this because the legend or else called the key explains that human progress and development has permanently changed all types of ecosystems around the world. I have realized that there are 5 places in the world that are more affected by humans than others. Here is a list of those places: The island of Port Louis, Southwest North America, Eastern Europe, Southern Asia and last but not least West South America. The most affected place was The Island of Port Louis. I know this because it was colored purple and no other place was colored purple.

It is a world map.
It shows everything Religon, Population, Geographic features, and Language diversity. I know this because I read the legend on the left side of the map also the title of the map is Human Footprint. One conclusion is that the United States is made up of three major religions, Roman Catholic, Prodestant, and Christian Mixed.

#1 The map on the human footprint is about how much humans have affected the ecosystem.
#2 I read the side bar with a color chart explaining the different degrees of human impact.
#3 I can make the conclusion that the regions with more extreme weather on this map are less affected by us than the temperate zones, because of less population.

This map is about the affect that humans have had on the earth and the map shows where the most drastic effect has happened. I know this because the key this this map is colors, just colors, it says that purple means it is an area that has been effected drasticly by human activity, green means the area has not been that effected... yet! The conclusion/inference that I came up with after playing around was that humans like to build/"leave a footprint" around where other people did, my proof for saying this is that the main places that were intense purple were big cities such as New York, London, Los Angeles, and Paris.

When I was looking at the Human Footprint Map, I noticed that there was mostly green on it.I also noticed that there was a tiny bit red and there was some yellow and and a couple spots of orange. something that I found interesting was that I did not see any purple spots or magenta and hopefully it will stay that way.

I think that the map was about a lot of different subjects, but I think that it was mostly about the tectonic time shifts and where it is moving a lot. I believe this because were're learning about the earth and this is a head start for the tectonic plates. Another reason I think that is because it is very easy to see that on the map. Also since it's named human footprint maybe it was about how us humans have made a impact. Also I must say the line feature can help you get to places

Hi Everyone!!

This map shows where and how much humans have affected the environment.


I know that that this map shows where and how much humans have affected the environment because the key at the bottom of the map tells you what is being displayed. The title also indicates this because it is called “The Human Foot Print”.

One of the things I noticed was that there is more impact on the eastern part of the U.S than the western part.


Thanks for reading!!

I think that the map can help kids and adults research, and find where their going. I think this because you can mark things, explore different regions and states, you can look up different themes like volcanoes and other things. You can also look up physical systems and units of measure. On the map you can use many useful tools. Its a great recourse. In the beginning I was talking about all the great resources, imagine traveling that around the globe.

Whenever you want to start a community, you want to pick the perfect place to settle. Usually, you want to settle near water, so you can get water to drink and fish to eat. You also want to know what the climate is in that area, so you know if you will need a well-built house, or a house with lots of shade. This was the same case for the Mesopotamians, who were once displaced people (people who are always on the move). They also mention displaced people on the map. On the side, they list these three things. In conclusion, this map is showing exactly what the Mesopotamians were looking for when they wanted to start a community.

I believe that this map is about many things but the one thing I think it's about the most is earthquakes, volcanoes and tectonic plates. I believe that because the earthquakes and volcanoes are at the top. Also the tectonic plates cause earthquakes and such. And a conclusion I have made after playing around with the map is the line tool is very useful. I believe this because you can find the best way to get to the places your going. That's all folks!

This map is about how and where human's throughout the years have impacted the Earth.

I know that this map dosnt have alot of places that are impacted. I know this becuase i looked at the key and it showed that green means less impacted and purple means most impacted. So basically the human foot print map shows us where humans affected our earth and where they didnt affect earth.

The map on the Human Footprint blog is about how much humans have effected the ecosystem.
The legend tells you about the colors meaning more or less effected in areas.
My conclusion is that some places such as Europe has had people living in that continent longer than other places and have had more effect from people.

I think this map is about how us as humans will find a place and we will exploit it for all of its materials and things and use those materials to create things like factories or big cities and industries which impact the Earth and damage it, and this map is to show what areas this sort of thing happens in and to show how much we are damaging the earth and turning it into a industrial planet filled with pollution.
I know this because on the map it shows how much we impact the earth and how badly we impact it by coloring the more and less effected areas different colors and by the fact that all of the more effected areas i know are areas like cities or power plants and places where a lot of mining happens.
With this information i can conclude that we are damaging the Earth quite badly and that in about maybe another thousand years or so the entire earth will be either uninhabitable or will be a become a gas planet of literal toxic gas, i can also conclude that we really need to help the Earth and be environmentally aware and stop global warming and pollution.

I think that this map is about the human impact and how we affected the ecosystem of this world. Many areas in our world we have impacted. But few areas humans have not affected in the world. I know this because when I look at the map I can see all of the places that have been impacted I can also see the places where it has not been affected or a little bit affected, to find that out I look at the legend/key.
I can conclude that areas like Europe, Asia, Eastern US and Africa have been highly affected by us-humans, When other places are less impacted or not impacted at all.

I think the human footprint map shows all of the impact humans have had all over the world. People have had more of an impact in some places than others. The places where people have done the worst damage are the Eastern half of the United States, the coast of California, most of Europe and India.
The picture of the footprint on the earth has more than some truth in it. That is what we are doing to this earth. We are leaving our footprint on this earth. We have done so much to hurt our earth. We have littered and polluted and dumped toxic waste into the oceans. We have to try to change our ways.
Some of the places where people have done the least amount of damage are Greenland, Canada and Russia. Those are some of the least populated countries in the world, probably because of the climate. Overall though, we need to improve our pollution rates and help clean up the earth.
