Digital Cartography featured

Besides featuring the best interactive maps of the week, we always try to present additional resources to the cartography community. It could be an article, a new finding or technology, and of course, new websites and services that might come in handy for many of our readers.

That’s precisely the case of today’s tip, seen on Google Maps Mania. In the article, Keir Clarke talked about Snazzy Maps, a repository of different color schemes for Google Maps. In a time where pretty much everyone is talking about the use of color in data visualization, this feels like a great idea – and if you’re a map developer, you can also contribute to the repository by adding the map styles that you’ve created.

If you like the kind of tips we leave here every Wednesday, you’ll probably appreciate the weekly round-up of catography-related news and articles that we publish on every edition of Data Viz News. It is out every Saturday, around lunch time, and here’s the latest one, in case you missed it.

Now, let’s get down to the list of selected interactive maps – starting with a couple of visualization built around Halloween:
