Easier to map an image than write an essay?

I teach a technical writing class. I'm using Edward Tufte's Beautiful Evidence
as the textbook. The first chapter deals with mapped images and the utility of such images. I need examples of text that would be more useful if it were a mapped image instead. I can comb the interwebs for individual examples, but I can't seem to find any sets of said text examples.

It's easy enough to show my students mapped images and explain why they're useful, but I'd like to give them a set of text examples and have them come up with mapped image replacements.
