Over the years Geoawesomeness blog shared hundreds of amzing maps featuring them on the website and as #GeoawesomeMapOfTheDay on their social media channels. Here are the 20 most amazing maps that have been shared from this blog channel

1. Global Internet Map

Our 2017 Global Internet Map has arrived, turning our internet data into a Tron-inspired visualization of internet bandwidth and connectivity around the globe

2. Map of all hurricanes and tropical storms since 1851

Here is an updated version of the historical hurricanes swirl map, optimized for print. Basemap is brighter, hurricanes are higher contrast, and a reference equator and grid added.

3. Map of rivers    

Hungarian GIS analyst Róbert Szűcs designed river basin maps from the United States to South America, to Europe and Africa. Róbert Szűcs has used brilliant colors for rivers as they extend across the vast expanses of the world. Each map was placed on a black background and the rivers were marked by a neon colored array electrified on a dark surface.

4. Each and every road in Australia

Robbi Bishop-Taylor – PhD student of Geospatial Science at the University of New South Wales, created amazing map that visualizes almost 500,000 dirt tracks, roads and highways in Australia. The roads have been color coded, with yellow and white representing major roads and highways, dark blue marking unsealed dirt tracks, and pink and orange showing minor unsealed and sealed roads.

5. Map of shadows in NYC

The map displays three layers with the shadows of the city in winter, summer and spring. Most of the Manhattan area will remain in shadow for at least half of daylight hours. When zooming in the map, users will see which areas are always in the dark or light at the time of day.

6. How animals will have to migrate because of the climate change

The mapping project Migrations in Motion is visualizing the trajectories that species are expected to take in the course of the coming decades as the climate changes. The project is the effect of the collaboration between The University of Washington and The Nature Conservancy. Researches modeled potential habitat for 2954 species using climate change projections and the climatic needs of each species. The effect is the origin destination matrix connecting current habitats with tInspired by wind maps, the data has been visualized as a dynamic streamlines plotting the migration corridors. Pink lines represent mammals, blue is for birds, and yellow is for amphibians. The effect is a hypnotic map that lets you understand the scale of the problem. Awesome project!heir projected locations under climate change.

7. Map of air traffic network

Martin Grandjean a researcher from The University of Lausanne, Switzerland decided to analyze the network created by these flight routes. He took a data from OpenFlights.org and generated a graph that visualizes 37.153 single flight routes. Martin points out that although global transportation maps that represent the flight connections are beautiful pieces of art, they do not represent the data itself, but rather some idea of the complexity and quantity.
