Map of America’s favorite Christmas artists by state according to eBay

Ebay map of most searched artists state-by-state (US)

eBay calculated the artists that its users search for most in each state. The map shows some interesting patterns.  Terry Redlin is the most popular search in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas. Never heard of him? He is the guy who paints the kind of Christmasy winter landscapes we’ve all seen at the house of an older relative or dentist’s office waiting room.  In California people adore Frida Kahlo.  In Michigan the most popular was a Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi and in New York Banksy. The question is why would eBay want to track the most-searched artists, not the most-purchased?

Geoawesome Maps of 2014

It is the love of maps and everything spatial that unites us and I can’t think of a better way to express it than by quoting Wisława Szymborska!

Flat as the table
it’s placed on.
Nothing moves beneath it
and it seeks no outlet.
Above—my human breath
creates no stirring air
and leaves its total surface
undisturbed….. (contd)

I like maps, because they lie.
Because they give no access to the vicious truth.
Because great-heartedly, good-naturedly
they spread before me a world
not of this world. – Wisława Szymborska (Read the full poem).

Here is a collection of some of the most Geoawesome maps that were featured on Geoawesomeness this year, I’m sure, we missed many more interesting and Geoawesome maps, do send us all those cool maps that we missed out this year. Maybe we need a separate post for the maps that were featured on Facebook and Twitter alone.
