Also, compare today's coordinates to those of other recent EarthView outings, near and far!
 It is far west of any of its Massachusetts appearances, for example, but how does it compare to its appearance in Matagalpa, Nicaragua?

EarthView is returning to its roots in the Midwest -- where it was originally made and operated under different names -- on June 4 and 5. It is in Cincinnati as a special event for the educators who are meeting to read ALL of the AP Human Geography exams for the 2014 season. This is an excellent opportunity for geographers from across the United States to be energized by the EarthView experience.

Note: Massachusetts educators interested in the AP Geography program should feel free to contact the EarthView team, which has had substantial involvement in the program.

June 4 is an especially important anniversary in modern political geography. Twenty-five years ago today Lech Walesa was elected president of Poland in the first election in a former Soviet-bloc country on the very same day as the Tiananmen Square massacre in Beijing, China.
