Something I saw today though is quite possibly the coolest map I’ve ever seen.
Information Architects Japan mapped out the 200 most successful websites on the web right now and orders them by category, proximity, success, popularity and perspective. It’s also really great looking because it’s modeled after the map of the Tokyo subway system. It reminded me a lot of a graphic called “Linkology” that I saw in New York magazine in February ’06 but I like this one much better. See for yourself: the clickable online version is here.
