I love detailed maps of landscapes - real or imagined.

what a map is... a map is like a picture of the earth taken from high in the air. a map can show us many things that are located upon the earth. a few of them are shown here. a globe is really a model or small copy of our earth. just like a doll is a model of a small person, and a toy airplane is a model of a real airplane. /cc @Sha Hwang

Hours of Sunlight: US v. Europe

Cartographies of Time-(Historical map of Italy) by Girolamo Andrea Martignoni, 1721. A visual analogy between geographic space and historical time. chronological charts in cartographic form. The streams at the top of the chart represent the nations conquered by the Roman Empire; those at the bottom, the nations that emerged from it; and the great central lake as the Empire itself. Martignoni's influential work is one of the first systematic visualisations of the 'stream-of-time' metaphor.
