Internet Zombie Map

A little piece of mind goes a long way so some of us might be able to sleep a little bit better at night knowing that the University of Oxford is on the case, mapping all references to zombies on the internet by location around the globe.

The Oxford Internet Institute used info in the Google Maps database to create a visual representation of online references to the keyword "zombies".

Their findings:

"The map reveals two important spatial patterns. First, much of the world lacks any content mentioning "zombies" whatsoever. Second, and related, the highest concentrations of zombies in the Geoweb are located in the Anglophone world, especially in large. The results either provide a rough proxy for the amount of English-language content indexed over our planet, or offer an early warning into the geographies of the impending zombie apocalypse."
