Zombies have experienced a surge in popularity lately, fueled in part by the wildly successful show, "The Walking Dead." This new site, Map of the Dead has capitalized on their popularity and has become an overnight viral sensation. The site is pretty simple: based on demographic data, it tells you how dangerous the places around you will be if there ever is an outbreak of zombies. The more densely populated an area, the more danger you'll find yourself in. Spartz Media would be decimated almost instantly. Then, using Google Maps data, the site also gives you important landmarks that will be useful to find resources: gas stations, hospitals and grocery stores, for example.
The site, created by digital agency doejo, was announced on their blog on April 10th. It was profiled by Mashable the next day, and picked up by a lot of other media outlets. They company announced in their blog that they had received almost 1 million unique visits in just 5 days. Sadly, in the case of a real zombie apocalypse, the site will probably be offline, so either memorize or print the map. Let us know in the comments: how dangerous does the map say your area will be in?
