While the United States might be as divided as ever, there are a few things that can unite us. One of those things is reading about interesting information and putting it in the proper context.
That’s what the folks over at reddit/r/MapP**n like to do. Check out the following 14 maps that show all of the interesting ways that information about the U.S. (and beyond) are contextualized into something truly unique.
14. Puts the devastation into perspective.
And it’s a lot.
13. Way more on the east coast than I would have expected.
New Mexico making a good showing, though.
12. Reportedly haunted locations.
What is going on in Texas, y’all?
11. Why do so many places think 16 year olds can make decisions?
18 is pushing it, honestly.
10. Really puts it into perspective.
It’s honestly flooring.
9. Welp, I guess it’s time for me to move.
What is happening in Arizona?
8. People with asthma, take note.
It really does matter where you live.
7. We’re all in trouble.
That’s the bottom line here.
6. No one is spared.
For once, we’re all in this together.
5. This one just looks cool.
Kind of like lightning, I suppose.
4. I guess it’s not unexpected.
I would have expected a bit more variety, though.
3. I hope y’all on the east coast have got some good bug spray.
Go west! That’s all I see…
2. Whoa, Pennsylvania.
The schools are expensive there, I guess.
1. Goodness why are there still so many of these.
Let’s move on, y’all.
I just love cool maps – they’re so interesting!
If you do, too, share your favorite map with us in the comments. I’d love to see it.
