Strange Maps – Putting the Spotlight on Unconventional Maps

Posted on Monday, November 1st, 2010 by

Strange Maps – Created by the map connoisseur Frank Jacobs, the Strange Maps blog has been around since 2006. Frank “collects and comments on all kinds of intriguing maps—real, fictional, and what-if ones,” transforming the world of maps from a dry information tool to serving as an insightful and intriguing source of information and ideas.

Strange Maps is the Weekly Blogs winner, which is why it was included in last week’s Weekly Fave lineup. Visiting the Big Think’s blog will make you think entirely different on what maps are and how people use them to convey messages and meanings.
