The Acupuncture Map

I was really impressed by some posters featured on the Landkarten Blog today. These adverts for an acupuncture business create some imaginary Google Maps for different parts of the body and use map markers to highlight acupressure points.

Of course I immediately thought that these maps would be very easy to create for real with the Google Maps API.

Here's my Acupuncture map for the head. I'm a terrible artist so please excuse the ridiculous head shape. To create the head shape on a Google Map I used Vasile Cotovanu's polygon masking wizard Geomask. Using Geomask it is possible to create a doughnut type polygon which only shows the map through the hole in the doughnut polygon.
