Chicago To L.A. – Take A Left. A Soft Right. And You’re There

We love maps.  E.J.’s first book, Hollywood Death and Scandal Sites, is all about driving and directions.  Each of sixteen driving tours’ sites and stories are joined with turn-by-turn directions.  The first thing we did developing The Movieland Directory site was ensure that the site could pass our addresses to all the major online map sites.  We love maps.  All kinds.  E.J.’s got a great collection of vintage star maps, copies of which will make up to the site some day.  

Here’s a tidy simplified graphic of the U.S. interstate highway system at a site were map creatives hang out.  So creative, that one of the designers on the thread took the time to fix the errors on the original.

As people who maintain a database with over 46,000 Movieland address entries, we can appreciate that kind of obsession!
