Cartography might not be the most popular hobby in 2013, but the group of bearded Germans behind Awesome Maps is working to change that, one map at a time.
The group has already created maps that highlight the best places to ski and snowboard, surf, watch football, and explore the West Coast, but they are now seeking crowdfunding on Kickstarter for their most ambitious map yet: the Bucketlistmap.
Donations to the campaign not only reward contributors with their choice of previous maps (along with supplying funding for printing the new maps), everyone who donates also gets a voice during the creation of the Bucketlistmap. In case you are at all concerned about the likelihood that Awesome Maps will complete this project, they've even provided a workaround in case of Armageddon. Now that's dedication.
