Zombie Map

Where in the world are zombies? Oxford
Internet Institute
researchers Mark Graham (of Floating
Sheep
’s fame), Taylor Shelton, Matthew Zook, and Monica Stephens mapped
the world’s zombie outbreaks:

Using a keyword search for "zombies," the following map
visualizes the absolute concentrations of references within the Google
Maps database. The map reveals two important spatial patterns. First,
much of the world lacks any content mentioning "zombies" whatsoever.
Second, and related, the highest concentration 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.
