On this #map the corridors selected are shown. Grey lines are existing routes not selected, solid blue lines are existing corridors that were selected, dashed blue and dashed red lines are new routes, with the dashed red lines being #HSR.

They include the following high speed rail corridors: the Amtrak Texas High-Speed Rail Corridor from Dallas to Houston; the Brightline West High-Speed Corridor from Rancho Cucamonga, CA to Las Vegas; the California High-Speed Rail Phase 1 Corridor from San Francisco to Los Angeles/Anaheim; the Cascadia High-Speed Ground Transportation from Vancouver to Portland via Seattle; the Charlotte, NC to Atlanta, GA Corridor; the Fort Worth to Houston High-Speed Rail Corridor via Dallas; and the High Desert Intercity High-Speed Rail Corridor from Victor Valley, CA to Palmdale, CA, connecting California HSR Phase 1 and Brightline West.
Additionally, a number of conventional rail corridors have been announced, which are too numerous to list here. A link to the website has been provided in the post.

The impacts of Alexander von Humboldt are still felt across so many fields, it's amazing.
His impacts were seen in geography pretty quickly. Here a thematic map from the British publisher, Johnston, in 1850, looking at Reptiles, which is indebted to von Humboldt's innovations.

Made a map.

It used to be a bandit hideout up until they were wiped out when they fought against the nearby capital city in the most recent civil war.

As none were able to return to this hideout and none knew of its location it lay uninhibited for numberous years.

Soon it became shelter for a group of beasts who unbeknownst to them rest just feet away from a great hoard of treasure and riches.

Фильтры Ansible: превращаем сложное в простое

Как правило, это набор фактов, полученных с управляемых серверов, или ответ на запрос к внешним API, которые возвращают данные в виде стандартного json.

Mistakes happen. But not often.
We can only think of a few maps with mistakes, done as map makers tried to keep up with the flurry of changes to all those western U.S. territories. It would have been a challenge, especially from the 1830's to the late 1860's. And sometimes, maps from this era can be an amalgam of configurations.

Here, a good map from a French publisher in the late 1860's, but they kind of transposed the territories of Idaho and Montana.

You can now buy my South Up, Aotearoa Centred, Equal-Earth Projection Map

I'm delighted to announce that I've actually finished a project!

Over the last few years, I've been designing a custom map. As per the credo of the "Organization of Cartographers for Social Equality", this map uses the Equal Earth projection to ensure proportional land-mass size, the South is at the up, and - of course - the globe has been rotated to 150°.

I've had it printed and I think it looks glorious!

Hanging on the wall

You can buy these maps from RedBubble.



This is a large poster - I recommend buying the 120cm by 60cm version. It needs to be that size in order to make the country names legible. The cost per poster depends on your locale and whatever promotions RedBubble are doing.

These are not limited editions! I will print off as many as people order. Each one comes with a small inscription in the corner saying what the map is, and some other metadata.

As per below, you can download the assets in vector or raster format if you'd like to try printing them yourself.


Maps are contentious. Some countries don't recognise other countries. Some borders are disputed. Some people clamour for reunification, some for secession. Some countries have a name given to them by their colonial oppressors. Some have been renamed by mad tyrants. Some countries have multiple names in different languages. Some are still fighting bloody wars in order to be recognised. Flags also suffer from the same problem.

The good news is that this is not an official map - my choices have no geopolitical consequences. The even better news is that the code behind the map is open source - so you can redraw it to your heart's content.

I have used the borders from Natural Earth, the country names from OpenStreetMap, and flags from Twemoji. If you dislike any of those, please direct your complaints to them.


There are a few of things which have left me slightly dissatisfied.

By convention, most maps use Shaded Relief with the light coming from North-West. However, because this map is flipped, it cause an optical illusion which make mountains look like ravines and vice-versa. As noted:

Viewing images that do not conform to this convention may show a form of convex–concave ambiguity.
Wikipedia page on "Top-Left" lighting

If you know how to redrawing or recalculate the shade, please let me know.

Secondly, in their default placement, country names and flags overlap. For example:

I manually adjusted the placement to keep labels and flags roughly in the right place without overlapping. I think I was accurate, but if you spot any mistakes - or know how to automate this - please let me know.

Non-Contiguous countries aren't handled well. For example, Alaska is unlabelled because it physically separated from the rest of the USA. The same is true of overseas territories like the Canary Islands and French Guiana.

The various seas, oceans, and other bodies of water aren't labelled.

I'm sure you will spot a few other errors. Either leave a comment here or raise an issue on GitHub.


This was a multi-stage process - mostly involving R.


The background image comes from "Color terrain art without type halos". It's a TIFF which has been rotated and converted to PNG.

mogrify -rotate 180 Equal-Earth-Physical-Relief-No-Halos-150E.tif convert Equal-Earth-Physical-Relief-No-Halos-150E.tif EE-SU.png

Country Names

Natural Earth only provides country names in English ☹ - but it also provides 2 character ISO codes. So I grabbed the country codes and names from OpenStreetMap and merged them into the data set using R.

The Code

This produces the country borders and names onto an SVG.

Manual placement

I used Boxy to edit the SVG and place all names in roughly the right place.


Inkscape was used to open the resultant SVG at 72dpi. I then used Gimp to autocrop, canvas expanded to 16000x9000, and saved as an uncompressed PNG.

The Emoji wouldn't import to either Gimp or Inkscape. So I viewed the file in Firefox and then printed it to a PDF. That PDF was cropped using pdfcrop` and then imported to Gimp.

Some print shops require CMYK colour spaces - convert Export.png -colorspace cmyk Print-CMYK.tif

It's not much of a map, but for us, it's a moment of "what could have been".
From 1883, this is a pre-automobile look at Los Angeles and its distinct neighboring towns. It does show the major wagon roads of the time, but those thick black lines were railroads that could take you down to San Diego, into San Bernadino, or even up to Santa Barbara. It's interesting to imagine if the region had developed by rail rather than highway.
