25 “Terrible Maps” That Are Surprisingly Amusing

Published 1 month ago

There are countless ways to interpret the world, and maps serve as powerful tools that showcase this diversity of perspectives. Each mapmaker selects the narrative they wish to convey, emphasizing aspects of geography, history, economics, and more to craft their own rendition of our planet. Some maps may focus on political boundaries, while others highlight the spread of religions or even the favourite soda drinks across different regions.

The social media project ‘Terrible Maps’ takes a playful and occasionally absurd approach to cartography, offering humorous interpretations you wouldn’t find in traditional geography textbooks. Keep scrolling to discover some of our favourite picks from this collection!

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
