Cartography is sometimes a matter of perspective. A couple of individuals have taken it on themselves to record their every location and mapping that. One person recorded every biking and walking route he took in New York City for a year and came up with this
. Another person took his GPS along wherever he went and produced something similar
- although this person seems to have travelled a little more globally. This person's travels have been broken up by year and even by month
. It even includes airline holding patterns.
What would our own travel maps look like? And how much would our travels be influenced by the awareness that we are creating such a map?
