? Cartographic Misconceptions, such as a lavish seventeenthcentury map depicting California as an island
? Political Parody, containing the ?Jesusland map? and other humorous takes on voter profiles
? Whatchamacallit, including a map of the area codes for regions where the rapper Ludacris sings about having ?hoes?
? Obscure Proposals, capturing Thomas Jefferson's vision for dividing the Northwest Territory into ten states with names such as Polypotamia and Assenisipia
? Fantastic Maps, with a depiction of what the globe might look like if the sea and land were inverted
The Strange Maps blog has been named by GeekDad Blog on Wired.com ?one of the more unusual and unique sites seen on the Web that doesn't sell anything or promote an agenda? and it's currently ranked #423 on Technorati's Top 500 Blogs.
