I wonder if someone ever told the originator of the map that he's guilty of immapancy as well by including the USA but not Alaska.

Im building 3d terrain models of mine sites and the surrounds at the moment. While there strictly not maps some of the them span for over 50km.

The resolution is pretty awesome, its all made using lidar data.

Language of the Land: Journeys into Literary America: The inspiration for this exhibition was the Library of Congress's collection of literary maps--maps that acknowledge the contributions of authors to a specific state or region as well as those that depict the geographical locations in works of fiction or fantasy. Throughout the exhibition, these colorful and varied maps reflect the contributions of authors to specific states or regions and locate their imagined people and places. Through these maps, authors' words, images, and characters, Language of the Land presents a tapestry of the impressions that endure in our collective imagination of the American land and its culture.

The Booklover's Map of the United States, Being a Literary Map of the United States, A Pictorial Chart of American Literature, Map of American Literature, Showing Points of Interest With Backgrounds and Facts That Influenced American Writers, Black Writers for Young America, The Beat Generation Map of America, A Literary Map of Arkansas, A Literary Map of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Modern Mississippi Writers: A Map of Literary Mississippi, A Literary Map of Indiana, Historical and Literary Map of Iowa, Nebraska Centennial Literary Map and Guide to Nebraska Authors, A Literary Map of Ohio, Wyoming Literary Map, The Literary Map of Los Angeles, & many more.


My personal favourite: The John Steinbeck Map of America features popular images from Steinbeck's novels such as Tortilla Flat (1935), The Grapes of Wrath (1939), and The Pearl (1947).

The David Rumsey Map Collection presents 19th-century maps, drawn by children. Relics of an approach to the teaching of geography through the copying of existing maps and atlases, many of these maps are stunning in their detail and elegance--though not always in their accuracy. Also, I'll be damned if one of the teachers mentioned didn't create something that looks an awful lot like an infographic.

Jonathan Roberts does Fantastic Maps. Whether you're looking for tutorials for tabletop RPG mapmaking, or just want to check out the designs of a professional fantasy cartographer, the only place to go is Fantastic Maps. And if you're a GRR Martin fan, you'll soon be more familiar with Roberts' name, since he has been picked to do the cartography for the October 2012 atlas of the lands of A Song of Ice and Fire.

The animation is part of the Welcome to the Anthropocene project, an educational web portal focused on humanity’s increasing impact on Earth. There’s also a narrated version of the animation which provides some historical context.
