This is good! But will I get any work done for the next two hours?

Cool maps - I think - but what a horrific, needlessly glitzy interface. It has already crashed Firefox twice...

Perhaps some statistics wizard among you might be able to correlate this with that?

I keed.

Huh - in the Nice feature, why do the "noise" links (ears) open images, and the "sight" ones (eyes) open sounds?

twsf - Agreed. For a site with such interesting and well-designed content, accessing said content is a bitch. But what a great link!

I *heart* cartographers. Thanks greasy!

Great link.

When I was a kid, I scored some maps that showed regions as seen from a particular place, e.g., Asian as seen from Japan. They were sort of like that famous New Yorker cartoon, but with real cartography, just distorted by the view from wherever.

Anyone know where I can find these again?

I'm actually rather impressed the cartographers parted out Mexico's substates, but did not do so with Brazil's. Perhaps it is too overwhelmingly Portuguese?

I have been looking for a geographic map of the "T" for a long time. Yay!
