The beauty that can inspire a love of maps is shown in a new illumination of rivers draining the continental US. Created by the travel map-maker Imgur, the visualiztion reveals the entire watersheds of the Mississippi, Missouri, and Arkansas rivers (pink), the Columbia river basin in the Pacific Northwest (brown), and the Colorado river drainage (yellow) along with smaller rivers nationwide. The color textured map was built with Graphic Information Systems QGIS software.
