A true roadmap

This fascinating visualization of the lower 48 United States is comprised entirely of road networks.  As its creator Ben Fry notes, it is “an image of 26 million individual road segments. No other features (such as outlines or geographic features) have been added to this image, however they emerge as roads avoid mountains, and sparse areas convey low population.”  It’s definitely worth checking out.
