Make a Map of the States You Have Visited

visited-states-300There is something about “local” that makes me think of maps.  And we’ve been sharing lots of map related things over on our Pinterest account.

My friend Malcolm shared a great photo on Facebook today of a map of the states he has visited.  Malcolm works for the National Association of Railroad Passengers and spends a lot of time traveling by train – if you like trains or beautiful scenery be sure to follow him on Twitter @Ferrocastor

The Visited States Map Generator

states-mapWhile this tool is probably more useful for a travel blogger than a local blogger, it is still worth sharing.

You can make your own map of the states you’ve visited here.  The Visited States Map Generator was created by Jeremy Nixon who writes about photography and travel on the blog defocus.

You fill out a form and click create.  The Visited States Map Generator will produce a color coded map of the states you have visited across the US and Canada.
