I do so love maps.
- Openstreetmap is the 'Wikipedia of maps'.
- A very thoughtful piece about the usefulness vs truthfulness of maps. Author also references an old (1937) book on cartography that revealed not just cartographic methods of that time but also prevailing cultural norms and hints of colonial attitudes.
- A bit morbid, but also interesting: Map of 2001-2009 road fatalities across the US. Seen at a glance most casualties are motor-vehicle passengers. When I zoomed in, it was sobering to see how most fatal accidents occured at bends and crooks in the road (road safety tip: slow down!)
