Matador’s Map Trove

Someone sent me a link to Matador Network’s 36 MAPS THAT WILL MAKE YOU SEE THE WORLD IN COMPLETELY NEW WAYS. They are all very interesting and I have selected three that are relevant to things I have covered here in the past.

A picture has been worth a thousand words for quite some time, but social media usage is rewiring our brains, particularly for the millennials. We don’t read so much any more as we scan, evaluate for relevance, and the maybe dig deeper. Maps and infographics not only express complex information, they provide visual anchors for readers who might wish to later return for more information.

Take the time to look through the maps I didn’t feature here, it’s a truly beautiful collection.
