Mapped Web tries to take psychological distances between countries and map them - a tricky proposition and one that depends on the topic being used as a search term. Essentially, it “does this by taking the chance that given a page contains the name of one country it will also contain the name of another country as a measure for psychological distance. The resulting images show us how close countries are to each other in psychological terms.” Some interesting maps result from this. Unfortunately, the images are just a bit too small for comfortable reading.

There are also a few other interesting mapping projects on this site as well, including LandGeist which maps countries by how likely they are to show up in relation to a search term (e.g. hot) and Mind World Map which takes what people think the world should look like and makes a map with the input.

By way of Vector One.
