Fun Friday: The Map of Springfield

The Simpsons, one of the most well-known families in America, live in the town of Springfield.  As anyone who has ever watched the show knows, this town has bloomed and blossomed into an extremely complex television town since its creation in 1989. Just check out this interactive map adapted by Adrien Noterdaem from the original made by Jerry Lerma and Terry Hogan.  Here you can find out more than you ever wanted to know about the Simpson’s hometown.  This detailed map shows the location of what seems like very shop, prison, gorge, apartment, park, and mountain ever mentioned, and includes pop-up images of dozens of locations around the town as they would appear on the show (see the screenshot below of Springfield Elementary School). Explore the world of the Simpsons for yourself through Lerma and Hogan's Guide to Springfield USA.
