This page tries to collect information about maps visualized in quiet style. It is de­signed to serve as a muted back­drop for over­lay­ing data visu­al­iz­a­tions. The goal of a Quiet Map is to re­move ex­traneous de­tail, but re­tain enough in­form­a­tion for the re­gion to re­main re­cog­niz­able.
