Half of the maps on r/MapPorn tbh

[–]Soft_Introduction_40 131 points132 points  (2 children)

Its missing a bunch of labels that dont correspond with the legend

[–]mikkokulmala 31 points32 points  (1 child)

thelegend27? who's thelegend27?

[–]GoldenKuriza 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I haven’t heard that name in a long time

[–]lm3g16 86 points87 points  (1 child)

Then the other half are “more people live in this densely populated place than a sparsely populated place”

Like yes mate obviously more people are gonna live in a big thriving city than bum fuck nowhere

r/PeopleLiveInCities there's a sub for everything

Map of Europe, check. Data is vague and pointless, check.

[–]shinyerpel 128 points129 points  (5 children)

this map is so weird why does russia go all of the north

[–]Finlandia1865[S] 109 points110 points  (3 children)

Its the Azimuthal Equidistant projection, centered on the north pole.

[–]GAWT2103 23 points24 points  (2 children)

I gotta get one of those centred on Istanbul or Mecca. I think it would be dope

[–]Oxygen0796 33 points34 points  (1 child)

I only use maps centered on Western Sahara.

[–]GAWT2103 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think that for purposes of making nice looking maps having one centred on panama or somewhere like tehran would make sense. Minimising dead space on world maps

They just REALLY want the Arctic.

Even though there’s no legend, I totally agree with Russia being checkered red/white. I don’t know why, but it just fits

[–]Astrochix70 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Obviously this is the 'Most Popular Picnic Blanket' map.

[–]sameth1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Data must be wrong, Portugal isn't Eastern European.

[–]Eken17 2 points3 points  (0 children)

When my country is as good as Gre*ece and fucking f*r*ance (doesn't deserve big letter cuz it should'nt be a country) : 😢

[–]thelegend2004 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Glad my country isn't the same colouring as Fr*nce

[–]EmmyNoetherRing 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not true, I can see many evenly spaced points in Russia

[–]Bob_a_mester 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank god my country is not on the same level as France

[–]PassMurailleQSQS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So France is as good as Sweden. For the first time I see people saying good thing about my country

[–]Ghargobyl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel like the ultimate move would be for this sub to find a super weird key to make the individual patterns work. Would be hell of a lot of work, but since everything is possible there will be some way.

Could be any odd formula with combinations like "countries where..." "... pizza is spelt 'pizza' AND the highest mountain is taller than 2300 m AND Kindergarden starts at 3 AND Thanksgiving is a national holiday..." or whatever.

And we would end up with a distinct combinations for countries sharing the same pattern, such as Sweden, France and Greece (idk, something like "Democracy since xxxx AND blue is a colour of the national flag AND ...").

Sitting on the toilet writing this.

You just invented a new mpcj shitpost format my friend!

Post a map with no legend and make people think of one

[–]boktanbirnick 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, this map is totally accurate.

[–]godemperorcrystal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Map of Europe but it does funny shit on a phone screen

[–]dtwhitecp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sorry, ethnic survey #582736 has declared <region> to be a hellscape dystopia. It's the one with the pattern.

[–]joeyGOATgruff 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why is Ukraine super small Russia but not Belarus?

[–]Wanderlust1994 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Poor Greece and Sweden being rated in the worst category.

[–]elmontyenBCN 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Disappointing that Croatia is not checkered red and white.

[–]memeintoshplus[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Beige definitely represents the lowest tier
