Articles about our work
Not long after Robert's river maps were first discovered by the good people of the internet, journalists started to flood in as well. One of the first articles was published by the Mail Online, featuring only the river map of the contiguous USA, still referring to Robert by his Imgur username. A few months later they asked him for an interview which resulted in a longer and a more thorough article. IFLScience has also found him more than once, two years apart. Robert being a geography nerd himself, it was never a surprise for him that geeky science blogs and papers started to write about these maps. Amongst others they appeared on the pages of Gizmodo, twice on GearJunkie and even BigThink. Digg, Yahoo and BoingBoing liked his work.
