The Corporate States of America map

Big-brands-hero.jpg

What do you get if you cross cartography with capitalism? Google Maps. Or, for those less cynical, this splendidly informative treat.

Designed by Maps on the Web, The Corporate States of America shows the state origins of the USA's most famous brands. A veritable goldmine of pub quiz knowledge, you now know that Hooters hails from Florida, and that Texas is home to Dr Pepper.

The map also illustrates the significant influence the USA's west coast has had on the world stage, responsible for mega-brands Starbucks, Nike and Apple. Make your own world domination jokes.
