David Moed sent us this full on world map shirt. I thought I liked a bit of map clothing but this one may be too much even for me.

Neil Ackroyd stumbled on this innovative use of Ordnance Survey mapping in his Barbican hotel room.

There is something especially delightful about being able to step over the Thames when you get out of shower.
This compass (or is it a globe?) is in the entrance to Jaffa port. It shows the distance and direction of a series of cities from Tel Aviv/Jaffa. You stand looking out at the sea and can see many of the cities surrounding you. The top pic is taken facing the sea and the one below was taken from the other direction because it does a bit more detail.
I like the way that the city markers run off the edge of the map and are embedded in the tiles surrounding it. The last two are Gibraltar and Tangiers.
Raf sent us this pic of the Tennessee Map Plaza in Nashville
And another candidate for #mapsinthewild @StevenFeldman the giant state map of Tennessee, in Nashville (had to take a screenshot of Gmaps, no ground picture good enough)
I think this is a fair candidate for waiving my principle of “no screenshots” but if anyone has a drone or fancies hanging from the bottom of a helicopter to get a closer up shot then do let me know.
