Post the best, the most beautiful, the most interesting, the most impressive of Atlas' maps here. I love looking through old threads with lots of nice maps, so I figured we should have a gallery for the best of the best.

The first one in deserves to be one of Hashemite's, of course:

Of course, these are primaries, right?

What will happen if a hen impregnates an asteroid? Certainly, this will result in a snow storm over the Canary Islands, which will guarantee an FDP landslide in the next Nigerian election. Do you get me?

Some of them are, but they certainly don't have to be.

I went back over and labeled the ones that don't have a title or a key within the map itself.

It is, of course, entirely fitting that the creator of this thread would also be the creator of many of Atlas's most impressive, most intricate, and most beautiful maps.

Random coincidence.

I made a map of a French election once, but I doubt it still exists - like all inspired things, destroyed by the march of human edification.  If this little work of mine still lingers in some dark corner, please do not repost it here for fear of repercussions.  However, if any of you remember, you could send me a private message about it.  I'd like to gaze fondly at it again.

I wonder what the border between those 70-80% Meek districts and the 70-80% Rubio districts to the west of them is like.

Look closer.  The river only forms a small part of the border Lief is talking about.

Kay, further north it's the railways along the Miami-Hialeah city line. And Rubio seems to have done better than a generic R among the Non-Cuban Hispanics.
