Six map links that every cartographer has seen a million times
This is coming from another blog. I do not want to come across as ungrateful. I really do appreciate it when people send me links or tell me that they saw a cool map. With that being said there are a few links/maps that I have seen a few million times. I am not even really a cartographer and I still see the same maps over and over through social media. The best is when I get the same chain email 4 times in one morning. Or when I send someone something and they send it back to me asking if I had seen it.
It does make me happy though when I see people get excited about spatial data. Spatial data is one of those things that you can use all day and not realize it. It is ingrained in humans to do spatial analysis without even blinking. I think that people get deterred because they think the math is too heavy. They do not realize that our brains complete that math with every step to the fridge.
