Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

From London to Tokyo


In this project, students take a tour of the Urban Observatory. They navigate and compare thematic maps to investigate the spatial trends affecting the landscapes of the world’s largest cities. Ultimately, students use the Urban Observatory to ask their own question about space and place, learning about our world in the process.

Learning Targets: 
Navigating and comparing maps
