I Love Maps

So here’s one from TIME, on population density. I did not realize Dallas-Fort Worth was the fifth largest metropolitan area. I did not know that.

    And there are 1,134 persons per square mile in the state of New Jersey. I get claustrophobic just thinking about it.

    Kewl. You can almost pick out the old Appalachian trail by the settlements on one side of the divide.

    Strangely, that is one of my favorite maps of the Cheasapeake area…first drawn by John Smith’s party exploring the area.

    I particularly like north to the right, all those hills and what looks like the eastern shore on steroids.

    Thanks for sharing the irrelevant map – I hadn’t looked at it in a while.
