US Interstate Highway System Simplified
UK Parliamentary Election Results
Proportion of Wet Ear Wax to Dry Ear Wax in Population

US 2008 Presidential Election Results in the Northeast by Town
(red = Obama, blue = McCain)
Finally, a properly color-coded political map.
I've always wanted to know about peoples' earwax!
The interstate map should have a line connecting Fort Myers and Miami via Naples.
"Map" of where an electric current must travel.
I love that people don't know the "Red State"/"Blue State" thing didn't start until 2000 and is essentially backwards.

Wikipedia recently started reversing the colors on all their historical presidential maps, so now even during the Civil War, you'll see the northern states colored all red.
New Zealand's Pacific empire
James Bond filming locations/appearances in the films
Looks like fans of Dallas in Pollux are in for a surprise.
Must be outdated, cuz clearly Facebook won the war.
You might already know this site, but [link=http://uselectionatlas.org/RESULTS/]Dave Leip's maps[/link] are fantastic and use the traditional colour scheme. The forum has a lot of great custom maps (like the one I posted).
Also, Stanford has a fascinating [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2BBsFdfoz4]lecture series[/link] on Youtube about the geography of US elections. The professor uses Dave Leip's maps but he felt the need to invert the colours so people wouldn't be too confused.
(hope you don't mind me posting maps)
A thermal image of my neighbourhood...
Cool! How'd you do that?
For the uber geography nerds among you, you might be interested in my recent [link=http://verseau.wordpress.com/2010/06/05/geographic-curiosities-the-east-west-divide-in-wisconsin/]blog post[/link] on some of the geographic curiosities of Wisconsin.
It's a city council initiative, we took a thermal image of the city last winter to raise energy awareness, then created a [link=http://thermals.ccc.govt.nz/]website[/link] for everyone to see how their house stacked up. It's interesting, but I don't think it's very useful.
2009 Election results in Germany.
Superimpose this map on it:
A map denoting the old West & East-Germany.
Notice how in East Germany, Die Linke seems to be the biggest party ... (and if you could get a close up of Berlin, which I could find, you'd see the difference also runs through West & East Berlin, alongside the wall really).
For those that don't know, Die Linke is the German far-left party, which does have remnants of the old SED in it.
Strange ... isn't it.
This should strike you as odd but about half of albany are patriot fans and the other half are giants fans with the steeler fans thrown in. But very few bills fans compared to syracuse.
And for baseball its yankees or Boston. And mets fans are just shunned.
Yeah, I know it's a knockoff, but supposedly it's based on [link=http://mashable.com/2010/08/11/2010-social-networking-map/]based on data from somewhere[/link] . . . or something.

Yes, all of Krypton's black people were segregated to their own island. I have nothing to say but: WTF?
