What Is A Science Map?

To quote from the scimaps.org website:  "Science maps serve as visual interfaces to immense amounts of data, depicting myriad objects in ways that allow us to effectively discern apparent outliers, clusters, and trends"

Or, put another way, science maps are cool visual representations of information that you can pull ideas and inspiration from!  You can see some examples above and below in this post.

A visit to the scimaps.org website is like a trip down the rabbit hole of infographics and scientific visualization.  The organization works with artists to display maps of information ranging from Geologic Time to a Map of the Internet itself.

Click on over to the Scimaps website to find out more about the Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibitions, and to view examples of the stunning science maps online.
