Mapping innovation

There is very little that is truly new in this world. Almost every innovation is created by taking something we already know and combining it with something else we already know.

That's what Cameron Booth did in creating this awesome map of the U.S. Interstate Highway system.

By taking two things we're very familiar with and putting them together in a way that's never been done before, he's created a map that is not just incredibly useful, it's also a lot of fun to look at.

Nicely done.


  1. Neato! Reminds me of the maps of London's Underground. I wish it was a simple to get from one end to the other as it is on the Underground.

  2. That was his inspiration. It's a pretty cool mash up.
