Blooming Grove Town Map

[Editor's note: I've never laughed as much when reading a map as I did when I saw this Excel-drawn map of Blooming Grove, Wisconsin (yes you read that right). Daniel Huffman dissects it in his new blog, Cartastrophe.]

The Town of Blooming Grove, Wisconsin. A magical, pixellated land full of jagged lakes and rambling, rustic acres:Setting aside for a moment the fact that the map has about as much detail as a Pac-Man level, I want to point out that this map is actually provided by the town as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. I am not kidding.
