Looking at maps has a calming effect on me. Maybe it is being able to locate one self within an area, or it may be the composition created by the arrangement of streets and patches of land. I found an entertaining Google Earth puzzle published in The Atlantic. It turned out to be a very challenging way to travel around the world through a satellite.
Consecutively, I found an article on FastCo.Design about a student creating carpets with a pattern composed of Google Earth images.
Finally, on my search for maps, I found the Landcarpet, a rug designed based on satellite images of various locations like Europe, Africa, and Netherlands. Such images are transformed into vivid color rugs that simulate the land patches of the countryside.
