The Guide to Springfield USA is an incredibly detailed map of the Simpsons' hometown. Begun in spring of 2001, it's the ongoing project of two former college students. Given the vague geography of Springfield (the producers have yet to reveal which state the town calls home), there's no way to really verify the map's accuracy. Littered with hundreds of obscure references to the show, it's as close to comprehensive as any map of a fictional cartoon town can get, covering everything from Burns' mansion to Santa's Xmas Village to the Up, Up and Buffet. It's even been added to the Harvard Map Collection of the Harvard College Library.
Even better, the copy available on the site is in full color and perfect for any dorm room wall...provided you can track down a printer that can handle its 1594 x 2443 resolution.
