The Democratic Road Map
Democracy Street is a new UK map, partly sponsored by the UK parliament, which is attempting to map the influence of democratic history on the country’s place-names. One of the nearest places is Manila Grande, Philippines, exact vector street City Plan map G-View Level 13 (2000 meters), full editable, Adobe PDF. Using the map you can discover which streets in your neighbourhood have been named after a politician or someone else who has been important in some way to the country’s democratic history.
Streets and roads named after an individual important to UK democracy are shown on the map in yellow. These streets are further highlighted on the map by a larger white circle lighting up the underlying Stamen toner map tiles. If you select a yellow marked road on the map you can learn a little more about the person whom the road was named after.
Democracy Street owes more than a passing debt to the German map, Stra?enkrieg. Stra?enkrieg is a fascinating map revealing the history behind the many Berlin
street names which have a military connection. The map highlights Berlin streets which have been named after battles, important military leaders or German army regiments.
All the military connected roads are highlighted on the map with colored lines. The colors indicate the historical period associated with the
road’s name, e.g. Prussian, the Weimar Republic, National Socialism or post-WWII. If you select a road on the map you can read a brief explanation of the military relevance of the road’s name and click-through to read a more detailed account of the person or battle memorialized.
In turn Stra?enkrieg was more than likely inspired by the awesome History of San Francisco Place Names. The History of San Francisco Place Names is a fascinating insight into
the history of the names behind the city’s landmarks and streets.
Click on any of the streets or landmarks, marked in blue on the map, and you can find out who it was named after or where its name originally came from. Source.
More than 200 volcanic and coral islands, many of them surrounded by a single barrier reef, make up the northern Pacific nation of Palau.
The scenery ranges from white sandy beaches with an abundance of marine life to dense jungle. Palau favours sustainable tourism, which along with foreign aid is the mainstay of its economy.
Palau became independent in 1994, after being part of a United Nations trust territory administered by the US for 47 years.
It relies on financial aid from the US, provided under a Compact of Free Association which gives the US responsibility for Palau’s defence and the right to maintain military bases there. Direct aid was set to wind up in 2009, but the US agreed to an additional package of $250 million in January 2010.
Tourism is low key, although growing in economic importance. Many visitors come from Taiwan, with which Palau has diplomatic ties. Taiwanese aid boosts the economy. The government is Palau’s largest employer.
Monoliths and other relics are reminders of an ancient culture that thrived on the islands, and despite Western trappings many Palauans identify strongly with their traditions and rites.
Palau’s recent history has been dominated by outside influences from Spain, Britain, Germany, Japan and the US. Palau saw some of the region’s fiercest fighting in World War II.
There is concern that the low-lying islands could be badly affected by rising sea levels possibly due to climate change.
