Map O’ The Day #165 – WWI Characature Map


Today’s MOTD comes to us from an amazing artist, Keith Thompson. While the map is not informationally heavy, like some of our other maps, it is stunningly beautiful and still provides good metaphors for the World powers fighting for control of Europe in 1914.

Map O’ The Day #134 – 3 Month Crocheting


I don’t know the creator of this MOTD but I would like to find out, because it is a fantastic visualization. The subject matter is the amount of crocheted art pieces that Madame Ulani sold on a website called, where artists can sell their wares safely and securely.

The map has two different xy graphs, both positioned differently making them flow into one product line showing where they were shipped to. The lengths of the chart represent time, in both how long it took to make the item and how long it took to sell the item once it was posted.
