Blog Review: Strange Maps

Strange Maps is one of those amazing blogs that does exactly what it says on the tin, and does it brilliantly.

Today, it features a map of the world as it would be if the Earth did not spin; without the corresponding centrifugal force (sorry, centripetal; hold the angry letters), a belt around the equator would be elevated above sea level with the rest of the planet submerged. Check it out.

Other posts include everything from cultural maps and old-school cartographic myths to the iconic Gerrymander and Jesusland maps (the latter being the third post, from Strange Maps’ infancy).

Almost every post is a unique find; I highly recommend the site, even for my less cartophilic readers.
