January 21st, 2011 Comments off

So, back when Randall Munroe updated his blogo/social network-sphere map a couple of months ago, I decided to delve back into my posting of amusing maps floating around on the interwebs regarding geocentric ignorance. Well, Munroe has taken on the subject himself in an appropriately XKCD manner.

December 22nd, 2010 Comments off

I rarely just operate as a bookmark to a blog post that I really like, but a gent named Darryl Cunningham put together an incredibly accessible and concise discussion (in cartoon form) of a topic that is dear to me: climate change.

Amusing Maps: Which one nails it?

If there’s one union that has been near seamless, it’s the internet with Photoshop, Paint, and pretty much any graphics program.  This is true with cartography, as well.  If there’s a map out there, someone has spoofed it.

But some of the more entertaining maps deal with satire of localized ignorance or stereotype… particularly when mocking America’s ego-centrism.  After the jump, I’ve collected some of the more entertaining ones I’ve come across while surfing the interwebs.
