This is pretty cool: London creative design consultants Schulze & Webb wanted to explore the best way to visually navigate through dense cities. What they came up with is now called "Here & There," and it lets you simultaneously and seamlessly view a city from the point of view where your are standing and from a bird's eye view in the sky. Why? "Because the ability to be in a city and to see through it is a superpower, and it's how maps should work."
The maps are at once useful and beautiful and, realizing this, Schulze & Webb have made prints of their projection maps available for purchase. Get a set of both 3-foot by 2-foot limited edition prints shipped to the US (shipping is included in the price) for $65.
They've also realized the potential of their horizon-less Manhattan in GPS devices:
The whole project is a pretty great way to experience how new technology, in this case 3D modeling animation, can re-shape all aspects of our lives, like picking up a map from the glove box to figure out where you are.
