Creative Mapping

In these three pictures I found released by the same company, the creator spend a lot of time piecing together all the land masses on Earth into the shapes of items that people would typically have shipped to their homes. This is effective because it is meant to show that they will ship anything to anywhere in the world. In how to lie with maps the comment is made that “you decide to reach out to potential clients elsewhere in the nation”(Monmonier 67), or in the case of this map the whole world. the maps creator has shifted the placement of the continents in order to advertise their product in a way that makes product transportation look much simpler than it really is. This map makes it look like TAM Cargo is capable of getting anything anywhere in the blink of an eye when, in actuality, the amount of work it takes is much greater since they cant shape the world into the shape that is most convenient for them. Now this map is not actually claiming that the world looks like this, but what it is suggesting is that TAM Cargo is so good at shipping products, it might as well be.
