Norwegian Cartozoologic Society

How many times have you looked at a map and thought “Crikey, that street layout doesn’t ‘alf look like an aardvark!”? This society was conceived in 1974 to promote “The science or practice of discovering and studying animals outlined paradigmatically by street layouts as they appear on maps”. What a shame that the site exhibits so few examples and appears not to have developed at all since 2003.
