Now that you have a few pints of craft beer under your belt, you probably feel like going on a zany goose chase for a mythical ape-like creature. Thanks to Joshua Stevens' map of reported Bigfoot sightings over the last 92 years, you'll have a good idea of where to start your search.
Stevens, a doctoral candidate at Pennsylvania State University, used data compiled by the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, which attempts to document "the presence of an animal, probably a primate, that exists today in very low population densities," the group's website explains.
Using geographic-information software, Stevens plotted 3,313 data points where people have claimed to spot Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch and Yeti, among a plethora of other names. Large swaths of reported sightings can be seen in the Pacific Northwest, the Ohio River Valley, the Sierra Nevada mountains, central Florida and the Mississippi River Valley.
The map also includes a chronological timeline that shows a rise in sightings in the late 1970s, perhaps influenced by the several Bigfoot movies released during that era. Another large spike of sightings occurred during 2000 and 2009.
