Google Maps, handheld GPS, iPhones; the list of electronic guiding devices continues to grow in the 21st century and these Magnificent Mapplications illustrate that getting lost will soon be a thing of the past.
While the bulk of the world may already be explored, the allure of adventure and uncertainty still remains. Map-themed clothing such as the Well-Traveled Tot Apparel turns an individual into a walking globe; just point to a new destination on the shirt and set out on a new adventure.
Online maps offer people an innumerable amount of diversity in regards to the information provided and the way in which that imagery is depicted. While they may be vibrant and colorful, so too is the abundance of cartographic art. Colorful Animal Maps or Google Maps-Inspired Seating are proof that graphic depictions of our surroundings are not only helpful but also aesthetically pleasing.
