See what happens when that the old school nautical map vibe gets together with talented laser woodwork supercrafters?

The folks at belowtheboat.com bust out really nice craftsmanship and detail that combines cartography, topography, information graphic-ography, Mr. Remke’s 11th grade Geography, and Great Lakes lunker hunter sweet spot-ography.

Great execution of these disparate -ographies help make a good idea become great.

Thanks Colossal.

The evolution of information graphics saw some cool highlights in 2012, and the New York Times does a great job of compiling and curating it here.  The famous 512 Paths to the White House which played out dramatically in real time in November, the patterns of where the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder hit their shots, how an orchestra conductor’s gestures and patterns flow while jamming Stravinsky. Check the creative examples of visual communication and technology coming together.
