One curious aspect of regional map art is the rise of map pop art. These works highlight the differences and similarities of an area, often with the use of typography. An example of these types of works can be seen in 'New Zealand' by American Flat, which uses typography to list the names of cities. Another unique example of map pop art is 'Fifty States, One Nation' by Aaron Foster, which employs depictions of license plates to unify the different regions.
Regional map art is one of the most common types of map art to be used for educational posters. This is largely due to the informative qualities of these map prints. Works such as '1930 Pictorial Map of North America and South America' are common among these types of educational prints and are often used in classrooms for both general and higher educations.
