Upper Peninsula Maps Gone Wrong hese maps keep popping up all over the place! Maps missing the Upper Peninsula, maps with the Upper Peninsula labeled incorrectly, and of course maps where it appears the Upper Peninsula is part of Wisconsin or Canada. T
The issue has occured so freqently in our own state of Michigan, that the
Michigan Legislature passed a bill requiring all state documents depciting Michigan include the Upper Peninsula.
We’ve been collecting these maps since 2009. If you have one for us,
send us a message and we’ll get it on the list and write a letter to the culprits.
Map that's missing the Upper Peninsula. What's up with that? Here's the source: http://www.citadelbroadcasting.com/citadel_broadcasting.aspx?id=2635
The worst part... it's from a textbook! http://www.yoopersteez.com/blog/upper-peninsula/high-school-textbook-labels-upper-peninsula-map-incorrectly/
Turns out that not only have virgin forests been on the decline, but the UP has merged with Wisconsin. Thanks to Corey for sharing this one with me. http://acrylicwonderland.tumblr.com/
Thanks to Todd (@tstanich) for sending this map over. This map was posted on AutoBlog.com but came from GM! As far as I've read the Volt will be available in the U.P. in the 1st quarter, and I'm not sure why they would split only Michigan into different sections on this map and not any of the other states. I'm guessing the U.P. should also be white. It's a bummer seeing how GM is a Michigan company. However, I'm guessing this was put together by some PR firm who is based a long ways from Michigan. The map, by the way, shows when the Chevy Volt arrives for sale in each state.

Dear Alaska Airlines, May we have the Keweenaw Peninsula back please? It's a beautiful area and we understand why you'd like to have it, but we really miss it. I'm not sure where you put it, but if you're keeping it in Alaska (which I love by the way) I feel that you have enough forest, natural beauty, and wildlife of your own. Please get back to us.

Another map missing the Keweenaw Peninsula, and it's a Michigan based company. You can see the original source here: http://www.acd.net/metrofiber.cfm
Looks like something funny is going on in this map. http://www.history.com/shows/only-in-america-with-larry-the-cable-guy Thanks Chelsea for sharing this one.
Hmmm something funny going on here. But at least they have the U.P. on the map. I guess they're just preparing for when we secede from Michigan, but I'm thinking we should just go for our own country and skip over being our own state.

Hmmm something strange going on in this map. Thanks to one of our readers, Alex, for sending this one along. Originally found at... http://www.metraonline.com/contact-us

Another map thinking we're part of Canada. C'mon Adidas. Thanks for the contribution @sarahstream
Why not just leave the panhandle off Florida? Or cut off the bottom third of Texas? Anyways... they could have used Anatomy Of A Murder for the U.P. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anatomy_of_a_Murder At least this one has the full U.P. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/10/27/the-united-states-of-movi_n_774741 Source: http://brandishingbonnets.tumblr.com/post/4238355796
This paint company forgot the U.P. I think I'll go paint a ginormous Upper Peninsula on their parking lot. Source: http://www.vogelpaint.com/shared_pages/dealerlocator/dealerlocator Thanks to Alex L. for sharing this one.

What the Woot?! Not only did they leave off the Upper Pneinsula on this one, but even Michigan looks like a shriveled up old french fry. Thanks Camron Gnass for sharing this one. Source:http://shirt.woot.com/shirts/united-tastes-of-america
Here's another from our friend Alex. But hey, c'mon now! The Upper Peninsula is home to some beautiful beaches. It looks like they're promoting just the West Michigan beaches here. But if you're going to say Michigan Beachtowns feature the whole state! Not just a small sliver.
Just don't expect to find it in the U.P. This one from our friends at Yooper Bars
Looks like we need to make a few phone calls to DISH Net. Courtesy of Brian McGregor.
The Upper Peninsula sank into Lake Superior, again. By the way, Michigan did pass a law about this: http://yoopersteez.com/post/house-bill-no-4995-passes-mike-lahti Source: http://www.whitehouse.gov/share/medicaid-map
This map could have been really sweet, until they went and included us with Wisconsin. Source: http://www.sumocoupon.com/trending-halloween-candy-each-state/
