Call me crazy, but I like public transportation. I've done a fair share of it, and, unlike most people, I don't mind being squished in a small space with strangers. There's something exciting about not really knowing how to get to your destination, but by the time night falls, you're usually there. As a transportation aficianado, I love this map, produced by the International Networks Archive (INA), so much! Not only a beautiful graphic, it's got tons of interesting facts. Did you know that 8 years is the longest horse-drawn journey? Or that our flying feathered friends cost the airline industry $385 million each year?
The transportation map is part of a series created by INA as a way to depict data about global topics in a map-like manner. Currently there are six other really cool maps ranging from the global arms trade to Starbuck's and McDonald's as hubs connecting the poorest and wealthiest nations in the world.
Check them out next time you're surfing the web (which may soon be considered another form of transportation, no?)
