Cambridges of the World -- a map

Below is a map I created that shows the cities and towns named Cambridge throughout the world. Almost every English-speaking place is represented. Hover over the pushpins for a small amount of information about each one. For simplicity's sake, this is only independent, stand-alone towns and cities -- townships, villages in New York State where a village is a part of a town, electoral districts, and so on are omitted.

 All information is from Wikipedia (August 2011) unless otherwise specified. This means that the content in this map is less rigorously researched than a typical Cambridge Considered post, but if you're curious as to the original sources of information, you can head to Wikipedia, which has a list of Cambridges in its "Cambridge: disambiguation" page.
