Do you like cool maps, graphs, and charts?

The YouTube channel "Useful Charts" explains history and religion using just that.

The account has amassed over 1.5 million subscribers on YouTube for its quirky, informative visuals on royal and non-royal family trees, such as Egyptian Pharaohs' and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's lineage, religious studies, history, and any other topic a chart can be applied to. 

The creator of "Useful Charts," Matt Baker, even made books and posters of these detailed charts, which happen to be available at the Useful Charts storefront in none other than Vancouver.

The store is located at 2916 Commercial Drive and is open every day from noon to 4 p.m.

The YouTube channel recently uploaded a video on Vancouver's history that details the city's timeline starting at 7,000 BCE to present time. It's about 30 minutes long. During the video, Baker refers to Vancouver as his hometown. 

Turns out, "Useful Charts" is created by a Vancouverite!
