Why all airline maps look the same - Quartz
Some airlines have flirted with minimalism in the past. After inheriting a 1983 travel magazine of Portugal, which includes that shockingly restrained circuit diagram of TAP Air Portugal destinations you see above, I searched the internet for similar approaches—all of which were made before the 1990s. That’s probably not a coincidence.

For Example
Well, here we are at the end. I hope you enjoyed the tour. I endeavored to present a wide gamut—to illustrate the variety of roles that examples can serve, whether visual explanation, demonstration of capabilities, or idea conveniently packaged for reuse. Above all, I hope that you look for little gems in your work that you can share with others. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Let’s Make a Map
In this tutorial, I’ll cover how to make a modest map from scratch using D3 and TopoJSON. I’ll show you a few places where you can find free geographic data online, and how to convert it into a format that is both efficient and convenient for display. I won’t cover thematic mapping, but the map we’ll make includes labels for populated places and you can extend this technique to geographic visualizations such as graduated symbol maps and choropleths.

8-Bit NYC
"8-Bit NYC is an attempt to make the city feel foreign yet familiar, smashing together two culturally common models of space: the lo-fi overhead world maps of 1980s role-playing and adventure games, and the geographically accurate data that drives today's web maps and GPS navigation."
