Map Of The Day

Cartographer Kenneth Field was inspired by a U2 song:

The map shows, according to Field, all 3.5 million streets with no name (which are highlighted in gold, à la the album art). … According to the map, Bono should stick to rural areas, while avoiding Vermont and Maine. The Joshua Tree album art was photographed in the Mojave Desert, but if Bono really wanted to show you “a place high on the desert plain …” with lots of unnamed roads, the map suggests that perhaps he should have stuck to the High Plains and Great American Desert of Texas.
