A Map Of Your Favorite Fictional Places, From Oz To Loompaland | Co.Design

Maps can be useful to understand the layout of a world, real or imagined. Authors are often world builders, and use maps to help them understand their own made-up world a little better.

We nerds all know that Tatooine was in a galaxy far, far away. But if you wanted to visit its filmed location on planet Earth, where would you go? What if you wanted to see where the Oompa Loompas supposedly toiled before Willy Wonka entered their lives, or plan a scuba diving trip to find Spongebob Squarepants?Here to aid in your travels to fantasy lands from your favorite movies are Will Samari, Ray Yamartino, and Rafaan Anvari of Wondernode. Based on data gathered from IMDB, online interviews, and Wiki fan pages, they’ve mapped out the supposed and filmed locations of fictional places, from Hogwarts to Loompaland to Oz.

I like how they also did a layer of the real locations of the filming of the movies based on these books. I already see a recurring highlights section for National Geographic Travel magazine, or something like it.
