Maps, Maps, and More Maps

If there’s anything the internet loves more than lists it’s very long lists of maps. So here are a few great ones, with everything from stereotypes to surnames and, yes, rubber duckies.

40 maps that will help you make sense of the world according to Twisted Sifter.

36 maps that explain the entire world from Business Insider.

There’s more over at Bored Panda and (of course) Buzzfeed. But the most extensive collection of interesting maps, accompanied by great explanations, comes from the Strange Maps blog.

And if you still want to read more about maps, you won’t go wrong with Jerry Brotton’s book A History of the World in Twelve Maps.
