Interesting Maps

I have had a huge interest in maps and geography since I was a very small child - I am generally fascinated with the way places and routes are related to each other in spatial terms, and I could pore over a good map for ages.

So here’s a little thread on maps that I find interesting and fascinating - some represent data, some physical features, others may display key routeways and connectivity and others again might show urbanisation and the growth patterns of cities.

Here’s one to start off....The number of army tanks per 10K population in Europe, by country. Feel free to post your own!

Map showing all the river catchments in Ireland.

The Shannon catchment is in red (roughly in the Centre), that of the rivers Barrow, Nore and Suir are in pink, the Erne is in yellow and the Liffey and Boyle are in slightly different shades of pale green.

Not army tanks, but this is a map of storage tanks in Ireland: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/OGu - May take 15-20 seconds to load. If nothing shows, press 'Run'. May not work on some devices.

Geographic correlation between the location of the historic coal mining regions in England/Wales and Labour victories in the last UK general election.

I like the American Werewolf poster but where is the catchment area of the werewolf's ear when you compare to JupiterKid's river map?

Only slightly related, but I was wandering down my town via Streetview when I noticed that the Department of Defence building was blurred out. Fair enough, since it's a Department of Defence (not that any foreign powers would be bothered with it). Then I noticed another house that was blurred out, an old single-storey cottage in a back-street. Why would anyone bother with that? I presume the owner requested it.



Anyway, back to maps! Here's a map of the most common surnames in Europe by country:

Ireland would be one of the best places to live on the planet if that were the continental arrangement today, sea to the west of us, land mass to the east and just the right distance from the equator to be warm all year round....stupid continental drift!!
