THE BUZZ: Find out what happens when you ask Google Maps for the location of all the Zombies in the world.
The above map was created by Oxford University’s Internet Institute using a keyword search for Zombies. The map visualizes the concentrations of references for the word Zombie.
“The map reveals two important spatial patterns. First, much of the world lacks any content mentioning “zombies” whatsoever. Second, and related, the highest concentrations of zombies in the Geoweb are located in the Anglophone world, especially in large cities.”
“The results either provide a rough proxy for the amount of English-language content indexed over our planet, or offer an early warning into the geographies of the impending zombie apocalypse.”
EGM’s TAKE: If there’s ever a Zombie apocalypse we’re done for, according to this map.
Have you spotted any Zombies in your area? Please comment below.
