The Interesting Maps Thread
#41
Here's one that's rather different. I'm just going to post a small thumbnail, because it really needs to be seen on the original site in order to be appreciated fully:

Each dot on this map represents a photograph taken in or around New York City. The blue ones are photos taken by locals; the red ones are photos taken by tourists; and the yellow ones could be either. (Some of them were taken by other Flickr users; the original map contains links to these!)

Growth of Walmart over the years: 



I have to admit, I'm surprised by just how recent much of this is. There are large swathes of America that didn't have any Walmarts until the mid-1990s!

Further back in the thread, I posted a population density map of the USA, in terms of Canadas. Here's a similar-style population density map for Canada, which shows just how extreme the population disparity between various parts of the country is:

Quite striking, but I suspect a similar map for "Each coloured area contains one-quarter of the linguistics textbooks in Canada" would be even more extreme. Just three coloured dots in BC, and then the entire rest of the country in yellow :whistle: .

In the United states, the median age of the population is 37.6 years. What that means is, half of the people living in the USA today are less than 37.6 years old, and half are more than 37.6 years old.

Here's a map that shows the median ages in all the other countries of the world, as of 2014:

It's kinda small, and places like Europe are a bit hard to see - but, fortunately, the full article contains larger maps for each individual continent:

Also, the 'As of 2014' is important here, because some of them are increasing quite quickly. Here's a video of how these median ages have changed since 1960 - and how they're projected to change by 2060:



Seems like China in particular has changed pretty radically over the years - and is projected to continue changing radically!

Nah. 

Just two dots for my house.

A series of dots of one colour for the best linguistics universities in Canada (would include U of Toronto, UBC, UVic, McGill, and U of Alberta, plus possibly others)
And the rest of the country in yellow. ;)

Apparently CJ thinks my linguistics reading collection is massive enough to be one of the 25 most massive objects in the Solar System :lol:
