When a map will help your post make sense

Sometimes a map will help your post make sense; on other occasions, it’s just an opportunity to add a beautiful image to a post. A great source for unusual and beautiful maps is Mappery.I just used a map of Manhattan in this post, NYC – free crosstown bus plan may reflect understanding of transportation system as network.

This post gives me a legitimate reason for showing you more of Mappery’s easily searchable cartographic treasures. Since the site is populated with user contributions, we thought it fair to bring to your attention Mappery’s heavy hitters. Meg comes in as the leader, with 963 maps posted.
