Strange Maps

Friday, March 9th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Strange Maps

I love this site! It is a blog, so navigation is super simple. Just scroll down the page. You’ll find the links to the archive on the right hand sidebar, as well as, a listing of other places this blog has been mentioned in. The archives date back to September of 2006, so there are plenty of Strange Maps to enjoy.

There are all kinds of strange maps here for you take a look through. From fictional maps, like the one from “Gulliver’s Travels” to the factual map of the Free and Independent Republic West Florida, there’s something for everyone here.

Each entry is set up so that you see the title of the post, then the map and then the explanation behind the map. Some of the explanations were very interesting. For example, the one for the Independent Republic of West Florida, I not only learned that this was a factual map at one point, but I also learned about the history behind the territory. Most entries also have links to the source where the map was found, so if you are really intrigued by something, you can learn more.

Some other very interesting maps were: The First Turkish World Map, The Most Generic Country Ever, Driving Orientation: A World Map and The Island of California, just to name a few.

I hope you find this site as interesting as I did. I’m still blown away by the whole West Florida as its own country thing. That was something I didn’t know. Check it out for yourself today!
