Fun to see Russia shrink when put over Africa.

Good to see the "Lubers" between "Dry Wood" and "Virgin".

Remember seeing the exit from I-95 to "Climax" in Michigan.

The fascinating aspect of comparative maps on the internet. The NY part looks like it was drawn by someone from the deep south who equates NY state with Manhattan.

Get in a plane and flyover the supposedly sophisticated, metropolitan, blue state of NY sometime. Eye opening. Which I guess explains all the Sasquatch sightings.....

This shows distance from road/track/trail as a heatmap.

It is what it is.

driving for a few hours without seeing people is perfectly possible in the yellow areas.

Its just not wilderness.

Good comparo is the map of the Earth at night.

That's the fascinating aspect, to me at least. What people consider to be wilderness when sitting in front of a computer screen versus what they consider to be wilderness when they can't get cell phone service, the car won't start, and the nearest convenient store is beyond their line of sight.

I know more than a few people who if you dropped them in the middle of a 100 acre woods, you'd never see them again.

Mostly AGW disciples...... they'd fall victim to micro-aggressive trees! :)

Good map of just how little of the Earth is settled, and how to some many, if it ain't paved, it ain't real.

I come from one of the bluer bits of australia (1/3 in from the left) and curently live towards the edge of the yellow bit in the bottom left so I have my own concept of what wilderness feels like, so i liked this map for letting me calibrate other peoples usage of the word.

hah, indeed, people get lost in the forest inside the bottom left of australia quite often but you do need to be awfully ignorant of the lay of the land and choosing which directions to walk in because their are trails everywhere and highways all around it.

nature and wilderness are to be protected and then seen on TV documentaries, they should be concreted over if they get close to your house because its messy and dangerous.

saddest part of the population increase we have had over the last decade is watching all the remnant land get turned into housing :/

Few things are as entertaining as watching a young greenie who only knows nature thru Google rather than personal experience, run headlong into Mother Nature in all her harsh, entropy increasing, cruelness and suffer the consequences.

I know one. Makes big money in advertising, thinks climate change is science, not religion. We worked on a non profit project one day outside, it was 45 F out, she shows up in flip flops and is stunned that she is uncomfortably cold all day.

Weird part is, they're supposed to be fans of Darwinism....... :D

Thank God for schadenfreude.....

Poverty + alcohol. Good thing guns are not freely available.
