What did we do before the widespread adaptation of Google Maps and GPS? Well, if you're anything like me, you probably got lost. A lot. But maps are good for a lot more than finding your way around - especially if they're online, where they can also be a way to track trends and crimes, help find you a new apartment, search the night sky and test your knowledge of world geography.
The integration with maps and photography can help to tell a story, or create art. In honor of a long standing appreciation for cartrography in its many forms, we present to you twenty-six awesome (and mostly interactive) maps. Enjoy - and be sure to share your favorite maps in the comments!
