How well do you think you know world geography? John Nelson recently designed this Esri story map, which is all about American geographic misconceptions. This story map is based on an excerpt from a paper published in the 1990s by Central Michigan University geographers Burton D. Nelson, Robert H. Aron, and Mark A. Franck, which outlines common misconceptions of U.S. students in an introductory physical geography class. Many U.S. students, for example, do not realize that two-thirds of Africa are north of the equator and associate the entire continent with the Southern Hemisphere. Similarly, U.S. students also tend to underestimate how far north Europe extends. To the surprise of many Americans, Minneapolis, Minnesota sits at the roughly same latitudinal line of Venice, Italy. Meanwhile, London, U.K. is close in latitude to Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Nelson's story map includes helpful visuals that debunk these common geographic misconceptions, along with possible explanations as to why these misconceptions have become so widespread.
