If you get geeked about maps, don't miss this article ... American mapmaking’s most prestigious honor is the “Best of Show” award at the annual competition of the Cartography and Geographic Information Society. The five most recent winners were all maps designed by large, well-known institutions: National Geographic (three times), the Central Intelligence Agency Cartography Center, and the U.S. Census Bureau....
USA Maps | Maps of USA States--the US map adam likes....50"x33" or so...definitely large enough for the blank wall space. My only thought was why not a world map, instead? Adam liked the detail from this map mkr, but maybe he can find a global one he likes in similar size?? Thoughts?
8th annual Best of Show award went to a map created by Imus Geographics—which is basically one dude named David Imus working in a farmhouse outside Eugene, Ore. At first glance, Imus’ “The Essential Geography of the United States of America” may look like any other U.S. wall map. It’s about 4 feet by 3 feet. It uses a standard, two-dimensional conic projection. It has place names. Political boundaries. Lakes, rivers, highways.

I would love this beautiful map to decorate a wall in my future house-- just read an article about it on Slate. David Imus' Award Winning USA Map.

How the world map would look like if every country's population matched its size.
#worldmap If countries’ populations matched their size ..
What if the largest countries had the biggest populations? If countries switch positions on the map based on their population. The US, Ireland, Brazil and Yemen wouldn't change.
The map of the world if every country's population matched its size -- Here's a fun way to look at the world. What if every country's population actually matched its size? So more populous places like Japan and Vietnam that are cramped in tiny specks of land now get to stretch their feet a bit while uselessly big countries like Canada and Australia get their population booted to smaller spaces.
