While the map of Florida shows the uneven distribution of its population, and just how much of the state is swamp:
One of the coolest maps is (predictably) California. You can see the incredible diversity of the state's topography: A clear grid around the agricultural land of the Central Valley, dense road networks in the Bay area and Los Angeles, and the absence of roads in protected parks.
