In the simplest sense of the word, a map is a spatial representation of something. It provides us with a sense of context, scale and location. Maps began as 2D depictions, but technology and data enable maps to become dynamic, real-time and compelling visualizations of how we live and move. Below, we've rounded up 21 awesome maps from around the web. Some will help you navigate your city, some show the actual mapmaking process and some are just mindblowing visualizations of people flowing throughout cities. No matter what kind of map it is though, it hammers home the exciting pulse and pace of urban life.

Night Earth - See the Earth at Night from Space! Night Earth - See the Earth at Night from Space! In this night Earth map the locations of permanent lights can be seen on the Earth's surface, along the daylight images provided by Google Maps. The original image has been created by NASA using data from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP)'s Operational Linescan System (OLS), originally designed to view clouds by moonlight. It has been necessary to convert NASA's image to the projection used by Google Maps, because originally was different, and the images didn't match. The final map consists of 87.970 images. The brightest areas of the Earth are the most urbanized, but not necessarily the most populated (compare western Europe with China and India).
A new map from the New York Times uses data from the Census Bureau to show the percentages of people living below the poverty line in each census tract in the USA. The Mapping Poverty in America visualization uses the Google Maps API to provide poverty percentage rates and the numbers living in poverty in each USA census tract. You can zoom in on the map to view the poverty levels at any location or you can use the links under the map to quickly zoom to a number of the larger US cities. Thanks to ProPublica we now have a Google Map that allows you to find nearby emergency rooms and find out which has the shortest average waiting time. The ER Wait Watcher lets you search for any address in the United States and visualize all nearby emergency rooms. Not only does it show you all your nearby emergency rooms but it displays the average waiting times and tells you how long it will take to get there from your current location. Google Maps Mania

Google Sightseeing — Discover the world via Google Maps and Google Earth

Google Sightseeing — Discover the world via Google Maps and Google Earth Revisiting The World’s Largest Christmas Shop Thursday, 19th December 2013 by Alex Turnbull Four years ago we paid a visit to Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth, Michigan – the largest Christmas-themed shop in the world. Now we can return for a more detailed look, with Google’s Street View available inside the shop, giving us a close-up look at the rather over-whelming quantities of lights, tinsel and ornaments, as well the over-sized displays found throughout the building.

Below are brief descriptions of the online digital map collections searchable and accessible through the OldMapsOnline portal. Nearly all the institutions providing online map collections have a much larger paper map collection available at their respective institutions, but the OldMapsOnline portal will only search and provide direct linkage to the online maps. During the JISC funded project we added collections from around the world. This funding has now finished but we plan to continue making content updates periodically. Read more here to find out how to add your collection: Collections - Old Maps Online: Project
Launch Google MapsLaunch Maps in LUNA Browser The over 120 historical maps in the Google Maps have been selected by David Rumsey from his collection of more than 150,000 historical maps; in addition, there are a few maps from collections with which he collaborates. These maps can also be seen in the Gallery layer of Google Earth, Rumsey Historical Maps layer, and in the Google Earth viewers on this website. All the maps contain rich information about the past and represent a sampling of time periods (1680 to 1930), scales, and cartographic art, resulting in visual history stories that only old maps can tell.

Disease Categories Twelve disease categories are used to help you quickly find what you're looking for within your local area. Most of the categories refer to where the disease affects your body, such as Gastrointestinal for cholera or Respiratory for pneumonia. We also keep track of environmental risks (i.e. beach closures due to sewage) and animal diseases (i.e. foxes found with rabies) to provide you a broader picture of diseases in your area. The number of alerts in each category determines the order in which they appear in the Outbreaks Near Me section. The category with the greatest number of alerts appears first.
