Places & Spaces: Mapping Science

We just discovered a very cool site: a collection of very unusual maps; We’ll let them explain it: “Places & Spaces: Mapping Science is meant to inspire cross-disciplinary discussion on how to best track and communicate human activity and scientific progress on a global scale. It has two components: the physical part supports the close inspection of high quality reproductions of maps for display at conferences and education centers; the online counterpart provides links to a selected series of maps and their makers along with detailed explanations of how these maps work. The exhibit is a 10-year effort. Each year, 10 new maps are added resulting in 100 maps total in 2014.”

This site is FUN to browse. Some of our favorites:

Visual Elements Periodic Table

License Plates Map of USA

Cosmographia World Map (from 1482!)
