Thought of another map geek idea. Copyright traps always fascinate me. Found a few more.
Map Geek 12: Omaha by the Slice
Interactive map of my travel bugs (current or last location).
Map Geek 11: Bugeater Demonyms (gc version) (ox version) took several weeks to complete. I never could find a clever place to hide it.

Map Geek 07: One State, Divisible (here for OpenCaching version) takes a dozen Nebraska maps representing various data. After using GIMP to alter them, removing identifying labels, I just normalized their size and uploaded them.
Map Geek 06: Name That Nebraskan! (OpenCaching version here) is somewhat similar to Map Geek 05, but it highlights actors, athletes, and one other (con-)man who were born in Nebraska. Many folks renowned for being Nebraskans (Johnny Carson, Warren Buffett, etc.) weren't actually born here.
Map Geek 05: The Big "O" Goes Hollywood (OX version here) highlights celebrity natives and film settings. To make the map I created the list of waypoints in GSAK, exported it and opened it in various map programs, off- and online. The best results came from using an OpenStreetMap in BaseCamp, grabbing a screenshot, and using GIMP to replace the markers with stars. The map started like this:
