Neat map illustrations from new internet friend

We've made a new friend on the Internets (yes, the internet can be a great place to make new friends, it's not just arguing with Drunk Uncles and cats). The new friend is Stephan Steinbach from the blog Alternative Transport. His blog does very interesting work on data visualisations, in particular maps, go check it out.

He recently made a post in relation to our old post about illustrating questions about linguistic diversity. For other posts from us with data visualisation/illustration, go here.

While we're on the topic of visualising geographic data (i.e. data somehow tied to a place, such as number of languages etc), go check out Speckman's lab in Eindhoven. They've made a neat kind of map visualization called "necklace maps". If you're really into map visualisation you can even play their game on making cartograms!
