new discovery: Jerry’s map, all 50 years and 2500 plates

I’m sorry I can’t find the first link that directed me to this, but today I took a look at a site I’d tagged to revisit, Jerry’s Map.  I’m loving it. Only map-making, geodesign-inspired, cartographically-motivated, color-exhilarated people might watch all 10+ minutes of his story, on video. Me?  I’m going to watch it again.

I love how he lets the cards direct his movements, and how he’s realized how the combinations from non-adjacent tiles are just as beautiful as art, and how he manages to find his balance between following spatially-autocorrelated rules and taking artistic liberties.
