PRAISE BE that this page is finished. Words can’t begin to describe the anguish over the above color map or a black/white version. It was ridiculous. I made a Koppen map from scratch a couple of times but there is only so many variations of color and textures that you are able to accomplish without the map looking totally confusing. Here is the black and white version I made.
Even between the five color classes, there are still multiple other shades/textures that are necessary. I really wanted to stay away from too many colors in my illustrated textbook but showing off the Koppen map without all of its’ glorious colors is really quite difficult to do. So I bit the bullet and just double checked to make sure the Koppen map I am using is free-use.
I do have master plans at a coloring/workbook for this project, so I will keep the outline work that I did for later use. I used the information page from Wikipedia to assist in the “research” for this page. As long as your information is attached to a decent source in the footnotes, Wikipedia is a very good friend to a geography student. I love Wikipedia. I know some academics hate it, but I think I admire it just for the sake of how it revolutionized the way information is crowd-sourced. I remember the first book I was ever truly interested in was this giant, fat, encylopedia.
Oh my gosh! I just found it on my bookshelves. Aren’t you in for a treat. Here was MY Wikipedia growing up and some of the pages that
made the biggest impression were burned into my memory.
How can anyone NOT want to go into the social sciences after seeing stuff like that?
