mapping and data representation resources

Hello. Here are some resources for those of you who are thinking about how to create maps or information graphics:

1. Book: Mapping Graphic Navigational Systems
2. Visual Complexity site
3. via behance

4. Sarah Illenberger's photographic illustrations
5. Book: Data Flow: Visualising Information in Graphic Design
6. Books by Edward Tufte are good resources
7. Feltron
8. Nicholas Feltron's "social networking" creation, Daytum
9. Stefanie Posavec's work is about translating typography into form, rather than keeping it typographic, but still inspiring.
10. There are some really terrible looking tag clouds out there, we bet you can do better.
11. Dan Collier's hyperlink book

my sister actually sent me in this direction, which is odd because ... well, it just is, anyways, she showed me this website:

and it has these typographic "maps" of all the major cities. They are pretty cool you should check them out, they have some nice screen printed ones and they are decently priced.

as far as my project goes, i thought it was an interesting way to look at mapping and typography together and the opportunity it gives me to use this as a reference or jumping off point when i'm trying to modify and personalize a map that i'll be constructing.
