The Man Made Netherlands Maps

If you scored more than 7 out of 10 in the Washington Post's Street Map Quiz then you have qualified to have a guess at the country shown in the map above.

NRCQ has created a series of maps of the Netherlands using only man made features. The Zo Zag Je Nederland Nog Nooit maps include a map of just the country's road network, a map of only railway lines, metros and tramways in the Netherland's biggest cities, a map showing only the country's wind turbines and a map showing only police stations.

There is no quiz involved in the NRCQ post, just a series of interesting maps. If you've read this far then you'll know that the map above shows part of the Netherlands. This particular map was created by just mapping the country's electricity power lines.
