Strangemaps blog

Filed under: cartography, map — ubikcan @ 9:42 pm

An interesting blog called “strangemaps” has just that: maps that are interesting or unusual for some reason.

Among recent posts, strangemaps has posted on the Vinland map (complete with someone’s comment that it is a fake and citing Kirsten Seaver’s work). Other examples are more whimsical and include the odd intersection where Delaware meets Maryland and Pennsylvania (making a small wedge shape):

Another interesting one on the site is a propaganda map purporting to show what Europe would look like if Germany had won World War I.

A fascinating blog well worth keeping an eye on.
