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)

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.

XKCD Map of Online Communities (updated version!)
