Lighter Side Of The Geospatial Industry
Fun,
informative, and cool maps. See what the earth looks like at night,
keep a tally on your presidential candidate, or review a “map” of the
brain.

  • Nighttime! – Earth Lights on Google Maps using night imagery from NASA. View in day, dusk, night, day map, dusk map, or night map modes.
  • 2008 Interactive Electoral Map
    – It takes 270 Electoral Votes to win the Presidential Election… mix
    and match winners on this map to see what states your candidate needs
    to win.
  • New Brainland Map
    – This goofy faux map was developed from a reference photo of a real
    human brain. A digital elevation model was then used to create contour
    line data and relief shading.
