Forget iOS 6, here is a map update actually worth checking out.

Shannon Rankin has created her Anatomy Series using the language of maps to convey the connections between the geographical and the biological. Of which she says,

Maps depicting mountain ranges, roads, lakes and rivers resemble internal biological features, reproductive anatomy, skeletal structures and networks of the human body. Symbols of cities become acupuncture points, and meridian lines, like rivers, represent an internal system of communication and transport.

You might say Rankin’s maps aren’t all that practical, but she certainly found her way to my heart.
