    This is a map of the United States showing which show each state allegedly streams the most. I say allegedly because Netflix and Hulu don't release consumer data by state so the folks that made it extrapolated their data from Google Trends which means it could all be complete ... / Continue →

    These are a series of North American city subway maps reimagined by artist Dave Delisle to look like the overworld maps from Super Mario 3 (plus one Mario Kart themed). You can buy prints of all the maps on Amazon HERE. This is the D.C. map I used for the main pic. The end o... / Continue →

    These are two Star Wars inspired map drawings created by hardcore cyclist Stephen Lund while GPS tracking his rides around Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Of course there's also the possibility that Stephen Lund is not a cyclist at all but a liar and just draws on maps of ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you're not staring at your monitor with a magnifying glass. If you are though, next you should look at the sun. This is a map compiled by Playboy using data from AskReddit (sounds legit) showing each state's signature dish. Rocky Mountain Oy... / Continue →

    This is a series of pictures of Redditor Mneneon, who traced the edges of the birthmarks on his hand and arm with a fine-tipped pen to resemble a map of an imaginary world. It's pretty beautiful. I wasn't born with any birthmarks, but I do have this mole on my ass. "Pretty s... / Continue →

    This is a demonstration of an augmented reality sandbox with real-time topographic line generation. Basically the system automatically adjusts the topography lines and color depending on the altitude of the sand in a particular area. I could play with that for hours. Or at l... / Continue →

    Fake, the shadows are all wrong! You can tell it's fake because there's no horribly misspelled name on the cup. Nice try, Starbucks marketing. This is the Starbucks cup some random customer allegedly decorated with a detailed map of Middle Earth. Did he draw it all from me... / Continue →

    Note: Slightly larger version HERE. This is a map that shows what country is directly across the ocean from you, provided you're on the beach somewhere in North or South America. It's kinda cool that in some places in Chile you can swim all the way around the world without hi... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version of the map HERE. This is a map created by Movoto highlighting the hometowns of major Marvel superheroes and villains. Amazingly, they forgot to include Santa from the North Pole. "Santa is not a Marvel superhero." Oh really? Then how do you explain THI... / Continue →

    Note: Larger, actually legible version HERE. This is the map of the internet cartographered by DeviantARTist JaySimons. I'm sure there's something to learn by looking at it, I just didn't pick up on any of it. Probably because I started daydreaming about how cool it would be... / Continue →

    This is 'Topography of Tears', a series of microscopic photographs of human tears taken by Rose-Lynn Fisher. It's weird how most of them look like little maps of Middle Earth. I can almost imagine Frodo and the rest of his hairy little friends bounding down a grassy knoll, re... / Continue →

    Note: This is entirely too small to read, click HERE for a much larger, legible version. This is a map created by Doghouse Diaries (link includes references for the data they used) showing what each country leads the rest of the world at. Some of them definitely aren't cause ... / Continue →

    This is a series of posters created by artist Andrew DeGraff that feature the Indiana Jones and Star Wars trilogies retold as maps of characters' movements. You might have noticed how he didn't include the latest Indiana Jones or any of the Star Wars prequels. That's because ... / Continue →
