What makes one map better than others?

Seth Stevenson at Slate singles out David Imus’ “The Essential Geography of the United States of America” as America's best wall map. But his explanation of the cartography and design helps the reader understand fully what makes this map so outstanding.  It is a nice high-profile piece for design.

I feel like I could really get behind sitting for hours, and agonizing over design compromises and name placement right now. It's part obsession, part Zen meditation.
