Mapping Examples

January 31, 2012

These are a few examples of some maps that Dan, Tom, and I will discuss in class tomorrow:

Neu-York: An Alternate-History Map of if the Nazis Conquered NY (discussed in a post here)

 

Twitter mapping of geotags through various cities

 

Transportation check-ins on FourSquare

 

Underskin: The Human Subway Map

 

London Tube Map: New and Old

 

NYC’s Design Scene

 

Musical NYC Subway Map: Alexander Chen made a version of the NYC subway map that plays music as the trains intersect routes. (Video on linked page) –> I’m particularly interested in this usage of animation as time and music as interaction in the visual space.

 

The United States of Autocomplete – This gives a whole new spin on stereotypes via Google autocomplete.

 

XKCD Map of Online Communities (updated version!)

 

Maps as a metaphor: Omelette Recipe (how useful is this?)

 

There are also a ton of interesting maps at Kottke.org under the maps tag.
