    maps

    Hi Archinect!

    By now, you've probably seen Google's April 1 release of its 8-bit map for NES.

    But have you seen this real-time animated map of wind in the United States?

    And this Metro Distortion Map that shows the travel time to stations in Washington DC?

    And Mapnificent, which shows what places you can reach by public transit within a given travel?

    And of course, there are Eric Fischer's maps of ethnicity, Twitter Geotags, Locals and Tourists, and his Geotagger's World Atlas.

    If there are other map projects you know and love, please post links in the comments!

    thanks for reading!

    Lian

    • Awesome stuff, Lian!

      This may be more in the realm of infographics, but visualcomplexity.com has plenty of sexy maps.

      Very cool! There are two other visualizations that are worth showing side-by-side with the Wind Flow - David Hicks Water Flow and Perpetual Ocean...
