Mapping Examples

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 under the maps tag.
