Strange Maps

Any Aeronef Captain, Ironclad Commander or Aquanef Navigator worth their salt spends hours pouring over various charts and maps. And the weirder and more mysterious the better I say!
This website is a treasure trove of all sorts of very interesting geographic displays - not just old maritime charts but, maps with different representations of the same old shapes youve always looked at.

Go have a look and see what I mean! Its intriguing:

And I'm still looking for a chart of Captain's Nemo's track in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by the way...
