38 Maps You Never Knew You Needed

38 Maps You Never Knew You Needed | Geography Education |

"Some prime examples of fascinating maps." 

Seth Dixon's insight:

This is a very entertaining collection of maps.  Shown above is a map that displays what is on the other side of the Globe (see, it's the Argentinians and Chileans that would "dig a hole to China").  Superimposed on every location is its antipod/antipode (location directly opposite on the other side of the Earth).  The journal of radical leftist geography is entitled Antipode, implying that they see the world through a different perspective and plays off of this concept.

Map number 7 shows what New Yorkers complain about the most in their beloved city. The complaints are split into noise, graffiti and litter. It is no surprise that most New Yorkers complain about noise in Manhattan, well because it is one of the largest cities in the world, of course there is going to be noise. And then looking on the outskirts of the main city in Manhattan there are mostly complaints about litter. The map is mostly blue in most areas. As for graffiti there are a couple pockets spread out which is where I’m assuming most gang activity takes place. Queens, the Bronx, and Brooklyn is where most of the graffiti is located according to this map. I liked this ma because it shows what you’re going to see or hear in certain places in the City area.
