Swamp revised

I used to always use this animation ...

To show how The Big Cypress escaped the ravages of drainage.

This map gives the false illusion
of a static Big Cypress over time
Now I see it as just another example of a myopic over-focus on the east coast. The stunning changes that occurred in the Big Cypress do not become apparent until you shift this map a little to the west. The implications are as profound as they are illuminating, and could have very well been overlooked if it weren't for the timely return of Jack Meeder to help us connect the dots.

More to follow ...
