Short and funny video on the (in 2013!) aforementioned Trap Streets.
Today we’re releasing the first edition of Landsat-live, a map that is constantly refreshed with the latest satellite imagery from NASA’s Landsat 8 satellite. With every pixel captured within the past 32 days, Landsat-live features the freshest imagery possible around the entire planet. Uses the Landsat 8 data directly now that it’s stored on AWS. […]
GLMap is a lightweight offline map component with a simple mechanism of integrating into any iOS or Android application. With the GLMap framework, map data is prepared on CPU and is rendered directly on GPU using OpenGL ES 2.0. This allows each processor to do the job it does best. By splitting up data processing, […]
This NYC map shows the effects of 100 feet of sea level rise. This will happen someday, but not in our lifetimes. A version of London is also published. The NY Sea → Londen, Drowned → Related: If all the ice melted → FloodMaps and Flood Map: Water Level Elevation Map which both simulate a […]
Why are we so confident these are the most detailed maps you’ll ever see from the 2014 Senate elections? Precincts are the smallest level of geography for publicly-reported election results. There were more than 175,000 precincts in the United States in 2012, fifty times the number of counties. The maps here show precinct-level results, where […]
MapIt is useful for anyone who has the co-ordinates of a point on Earth, and who needs to find out what country, region, city, constituency, or state it lies within. It’s also great for looking up the shapes of all those boundaries. Above is a screenshot using the coordinates of my hometown Deinze. Data also […]
The Open Source Routing Machine (OSRM) is a C++ implementation of a high-performance routing engine for shortest paths in road networks. It combines sophisticated routing algorithms with the open and free road network data of the OpenStreetMap (OSM) project. OSRM is able to compute and output a shortest path between any origin and destination within […]
Truly a collection of beautiful maps. A shame it’s not possible to watch the full resolution variants of the maps. Beautiful Maps →

Neat installation which projects a map onto tiles, and then morphs those tiles to make them resemble the actual changes in altitude of the map projected.
