Map Controls

In this documentary, in the form of a satellite map, you can zoom in on and follow the adventures of Charles Darwin as he traveled the world for six years collecting data for his radical theories on biology. Unlike most maps, this map enables you to digitally experience the expedition and zoom in close on each location while you read his eBook online. Thus you can zoom in on the Strait of Magellan, Bahia Blanca, the Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, the Chronos, and Galapagos Archipelagos. Find the location where the forest floor was covered in fallen trees ten feet deep. See the locations the along the coast of Chile, where in 1835 Darwin experienced three earthquakes and a tsunami in a short period of time. By activating the 3D terrain mode, and using the compass to rotate and see the horizon, you can view the map with mountains that you can zoom in on in order to understand how Darwin viewed it and the difficulty of his travels.
