As you search the web you’ll come across a wide range of interactive and graphical maps . Deciding when, where and how to integrate or display a map on your site is the first step, the second should be what technology and illustrations to use. If you’re all about interaction , JQuery, Ajax, or Flash are all effective technologies that hold their own ground. Map illustrations are a dime a dozen however, a strong and balanced display of graphics, information, and colors is what makes an infographic stand out and reach its target audience effectively.
The short animation titled " Deluge " [bengler.no] by Even Westvang reveals how public data can be analyzed to reveal potentially interesting patterns. In particular, this movie demonstrates the patterns of 300.000 Norwegians moving house, by cross-referencing the tax records of about 4 million individual Norwegians from 2006 and 2007. In the movie, the data is filtered by paramaters like yearly income or age, and a distinction is made between 'incoming' (red) and 'outgoing' (blue) citizens.
Map in photo above is a part of one of my final projects I did for my last school, London College of Printing (now London College of Communication). It was an attemt to redesign the London Underground map. In the beginning when I didn’t know what to do with the project, I called it “impossible mission”. How could I come up with some innovative ideas to this piece of design that is by many considered as one of the best in graphic design ever?
Sam Loman [just-sam.com] created an original take on illustrating the inner structure and workings of the human body as the tight intertwining of different systems (e.g. arterial, digestive, musculetal, respiratory, etc.), by way of a subway map metaphor. The full size version is available below (by courtesy of Vizworld ).

In Metrography [looksgood.de], interaction design students Benedikt Groß [looksgood.de] and Bertrand Clerc [bertrandclerc.com] and presents us with an alternative view on London. What if the street map was reshaped according to the positions of the tube stations as placed on the Tube map? The result is a 'warped' or 'morphed' map of London, that highlights the discrepancy between the stylized metro map and the geographically correct depiction. The resulting high-resolution prints can be viewed online in all detail .
The first volume of the History of Cartography was published in 1987 and the three books that constitute Volume Two appeared over the following eleven years. In 1987 the worldwide web did not exist, and since 1998 book publishing has gone through a revolution in the production and dissemination of work. Although the large format and high quality image reproduction of the printed books (see right column) are still well-suited to the requirements for the publishing of maps, the online availability of material is a boon to scholars and map enthusiasts. On this site the University of Chicago Press is pleased to present the first two volumes of the History of Cartography in PDF format. Navigate to the PDFs from the left column.
The end of the Revolutionary War, settled by the Treaty of Paris early in 1783, resulted in many maps published that year. Maps issued in previous years with "British colonies" or similar title words were reissued in the 1780's with "United States" in the title, and few other changes. The first map of the United States 'compiled, engraved, and printed by an American' was Abel Buell's A NEW AND CORRECT MAP OF THE UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA LAYD DOWN FROM THE LATEST OBSERVATIONS AND BEST AUTHORITY AGREEABLE TO THE PEACE OF 1783, published in 1784.
Matthew Paris (c. 1200-1259) became a monk of St. Albans in 1217, and in 1236 became the abbey chronicler, a task which allowed him to exercise and explore his talents as a scribe, and as an accomplished and inventive artist. Most of this manuscript is written in Matthew's own distinctive handwriting, as are the miniatures, except for some added in the 14th century. Known by Matthew as his 'Book of Additions', it contains a variety of miscellaneous texts and images.
I'll be taking a two-day quick trip across Washington traveling as much as possible upon the old Yellowstone Trail. Unlike other old roads that I've traveled (Route 66, etc), there's no guide book to tell me to "turn left at crappy dirt road and hope for the best." So I had to gather some common sense, maps, hearsay, luck and prayers and map it out myself.
A Republic of Desire The locus of the end points of projected desires and imagined journeys from my home(s), 1978-2009. All projections A rainbow of imagined thrusts into the world. Not places I'd BEEN, places I LONGED to reach, journeys I envisioned.
INSTRUCTIONS: Create a strip map modeled on Ogilby's maps . "A strip map is a process map, a diagram of how to go from one place to another; route and destinations are predetermined. Ordinary maps are state maps describing the whole countryside; the user decides where to go from wherever he is."
