“NO” – Found Cartographic Typography

Photograph of two framed maps spelling out the word NO in my hallway

I have a quite a few framed maps hanging in my house just waiting to be purchased. In fact, I have more framed maps than I have available wall space. Usually before we have a big party I go around the house and rearrange the framed maps so our guests see different maps each time they visit. The other night when I was walking up the stairs I noticed that the two maps that I’ve had up for a months actually spelled something. The N from N Prague and the torus around Georgetown Lenz #2 kind of spell out the word NO. I wonder if guests saw this? Or if it could have been construed as a subliminal message?

Below are the maps as they appeared in their original blog entries:

I haven’t made a rendering of Europe like this one before. As of late, I’ve been using most aerial photography from the USGS and satellite imagery from NASA. This imagery I found by scouring someone’s extensive digital map collection and randomly discovered some high-resolution imagery of Prague, Czech Republic.

The most striking feature of this map is the way the Danube bends and reflects. It really gives more definition to the lines of symmetry. Generally, when there is some of specific geographic identifier within the prepared imagery, the final product tends to be slightly more intricate. This is definitely the case with Prague. Up next, the letter N or the letter Z, it all depends on your perspective.
