Where are Animated Movies Set? by JaySimons
Where are Animated Movies Set?

World map showing where the 124 most popular animated movies are set. Includes all major animated movies by Disney, Dreamworks and a multitude of other media companies. All locations were either explicitly stated/shown in the movies(Finding Nemo, Rio, Madagascar, etc.), derived from the evidence within the movie(Frozen, Lion King...) or derived from the original work the movie was based in (Snow White, Pinocchio).
Placing some of the movies on the map was very difficult and required a lot of research(including looking through fan theories or studying where are various animal species geographically distributed). Movies that take place in radically different universes (Treasure Planet, Wreck-it-ralph, etc.) were not included on the map.…

Constellations throughout the ages by JaySimons
Constellations throughout the ages

Though on the short timescale, stars appear to mantain nearly fixed positions in relation to each other, long-term observations show that all stars indeed move and all constellations gradually change over time.

This chart shows how the various constellations on the night sky(namely the Big Dipper, Orion, Crux, Leo, Cassiopea and Lyra) changed throughout the human history and how will they look to an earth-based observer in the distant future.

All data used to make this chart was gathered from the Hipparcos Catalogue. Visualization was achieved using the special astronomical software HippLiner.

Syrian Civil War and Iraqi insurgency - Timelapse
First animated timelapse of the Syrian Civil War and its spillover into Iraq, from its beginning in March 2011 to mid-December 2014

First of all, you have done a fantastic job, I really like your maps and I´m interesting in buying some of them, but there are a huge mistake for me in your Europe´s maps. I am from GRAN CANARIA and my island doesn´t appear in your maps. Please check that the CANARY ISLANDS are seven, no six, and fix it.
Finally I have to say that your work is amazing.
