This week we’re prepping for Spring Break 2013 with a collection of links to road trip related maps & apps for you to enjoy. Since we’re so focused on hitting the road, we wanted to share a map that shows the average distance to a road across the country. Most of us in cities take our roads for granted, but there’s still a lot of territory that’s “off the beaten path”.

1-1d distance to nearest road

At we curate and bring you the best geography and science resources from the web. We hope our sharing will keep you up to date on the latest science and geospatial news.

This map was originally shared at and was created by cobra185 on reddit.
