Mapping of the world during this time period was driven by massive industrialization and exploration. As people ventured further from traditional population centers, a new market for reliable maps was created. In , diamonds were discovered in the Kimberley region of South Africa. In , gold was discovered in Transvaal. This led to colonization in Southern Africa by the British and business interests, led by Cecil Rhodes. The 19th century saw the birth of science as a profession; the term scientist was coined in by William Whewell ,  which soon replaced the older term of natural philosopher.
Among the most influential ideas of the 19th century were those of Charles Darwin alongside the independent researches of Alfred Russel Wallace , who in published the book The Origin of Species , which introduced the idea of evolution by natural selection. Another important landmark in medicine and biology were the successful efforts to prove the germ theory of disease. Following this, Louis Pasteur made the first vaccine against rabies , and also made many discoveries in the field of chemistry, including the asymmetry of crystals.
In chemistry, Dmitri Mendeleev , following the atomic theory of John Dalton , created the first periodic table of elements. Thermodynamics led to an understanding of heat and the notion of energy was defined.
Other highlights include the discoveries unveiling the nature of atomic structure and matter, simultaneously with chemistry — and of new kinds of radiation. In astronomy, the planet Neptune was discovered. In mathematics, the notion of complex numbers finally matured and led to a subsequent analytical theory; they also began the use of hypercomplex numbers.
Karl Weierstrass and others carried out the arithmetization of analysis for functions of real and complex variables. It also saw rise to new progress in geometry beyond those classical theories of Euclid, after a period of nearly two thousand years. The mathematical science of logic likewise had revolutionary breakthroughs after a similarly long period of stagnation.

But the most important step in science at this time were the ideas formulated by the creators of electrical science. Their work changed the face of physics and made possible for new technology to come about: Thomas Alva Edison gave the world a practical everyday lightbulb. Nikola Tesla pioneered the induction motor , high frequency transmission of electricity, and remote control. Other new inventions were electrical telegraphy and the telephone. On the literary front the new century opens with romanticism , a movement that spread throughout Europe in reaction to 18th-century rationalism, and it develops more or less along the lines of the Industrial Revolution, with a design to react against the dramatic changes wrought on nature by the steam engine and the railway.
William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge are considered the initiators of the new school in England, while in the continent the German Sturm und Drang spreads its influence as far as Italy and Spain. French arts had been hampered by the Napoleonic Wars but subsequently developed rapidly. Modernism began.
Italian naturalist novels are especially important in that they give a social map of the new unified Italy to a people that until then had been scarcely aware of its ethnic and cultural diversity. There was a huge literary output during the 19th century. The Realism and Romanticism of the early 19th century gave way to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism in the later half of the century, with Paris being the dominant art capital of the world. Sonata form matured during the Classical era to become the primary form of instrumental compositions throughout the 19th century.
Much of the music from the 19th century was referred to as being in the Romantic style. The list includes:. Henry David Thoreau , August John L Sullivan in his prime, c. David Livingstone , left Britain for Africa in Jesse and Frank James , Geronimo , , prominent leader of the Chiricahua Apache.
