An atlas of Cormoran Strike's world

Cormoran Strike's world is about 95% straight-up real. I started by looking on Google to see where Strike's office is on Denmark Street and then I got drawn in, so here's a map with locations from all three Robert Galbraith books – separated into layers – plus a layer of locations each specific to Strike and Robin.

Elements around the world

I've been marking up a map of the world with locations relevant to a particular chemical element (so far just sulfur, arsenic, and iron). Each mark includes a brief description with links to additional information.

Transit Battle NYC: Pretty Maps for the Subway, Bus and Rail

People in New York love the subway way more than the bus. Sure, it's okay, the bus is confusing, but what if they knew all the secret places the bus could take them faster than the subway? And there was a reaaaally nice interactive map to go along with it? [more inside]

Gyms Near You!

I was playing round with Google's Fusion Tables and suddenly realised that it was both a map tile server and also a spatial query processor, all for free! Had previously struggled setting up PostGIS and Tilestache, so this was quite an eye-opener. Made a little test project, showing most of the gym locations in the UK, which shows the nearest five gyms for any other gym and also has Street View captures for a small subset of them.

Infinimapper - HTML5-based Map Editor

The famous Tiled map editor is a powerful open source application for creating tile-based maps for use in video games, but what happens when we bring that level of versatility to anything that can run a modern browser? Add in the ability to create maps as large as you can imagine, allow editors in the same space to see each others work in real time, and this open source project could help facilitate a level of collaboration previously difficult to achieve. The end goals of this include use as a classroom teaching tool to spark young imaginations and hopefully generate interest in software development through simple games. It's a work in progress, so please feel free to let me know if there's anything you'd like to see.

A New Running Map

The first of a serious of neat little side projects from my usual work on MapBox and the like - a new kind of map (I call it a 'squiggle') and a new pretty map. But, hopefully a lot more than that - I documented the process of creating the map in serious detail, and it goes over re-teaching myself high school trig, writing a scraper for Garmin Connect, trying to fake being a real artist, and figuring out some new map interactions. There's more to come, and ideally this convinces the big groups that hold onto our data to let us get at it to make more beautiful things.

Stand up for Wisconsin: A map of solidarity rallies all over the country

This is a map and list of events, rallies and protests related to the opposition to Scott Walker's budget bill in Wisconsin and in support of unions all over the country. It came about because I couldn't find a single, quick source for what was going on in my area. Right now it's a manually updated Google spreadsheet that's periodically (manually) fed into a batchgeo map, but I hope to implement some of the suggestions offered in this askme. I wanted to wait to post this until it was prettier, but time is of the essence and I'd like to get it out there ASAP. [more inside]

The TSA Choice

The TSA Choice is an activist site against the deployment of whole-body scanners and the TSA's new "enhanced patdown" procedures. We've created a map and word cloud to show what choices people are making in the security line at airports across the U.S. -- the naked pictures, or the thorough fondling by a gloved stranger? Please share your experience, too!

Hackerviews.com - Find and meet nearby independent web people

A friend and I built a simple map-based web site to help independent programmers and designers (what we call "hackers") find each other and organize meetups. We know from our own experience that this independent work can be lonely sometimes, so our hope is to help these people find nearby friends to work alongside or even collaborate with. Meetups can be organized for hanging out or just for work sessions at cafes. We are focused in particular on bringing people together from the Hacker News community (news.ycombinator.com) but I thought I'd post this here because I know there are a lot of independent, super savvy Internet folks in this community as well. Please sign up (takes 15 seconds) and add yourself to the map! (This is a barebones initial release but any and all feedback welcome.)

Wikidirections

Wikidirections is a wiki to help you get from A to B. We're a human mapping service, but with a twist. Google Maps will give you (sometimes) precise driving directions, but they won't tell you which is the cheapest, or safest, or most scenic, or quickest way between two points. Should you take the train from Vienna to Salzburg, or is the bus cheaper? That's where Wikidirections comes in. Wikidirections is geared towards world travelers, written by world travelers. We won't tell you how to get from your house to the drug store, but we will tell you, for example, how to get from Spain to Morocco quickly, cheaply, and without getting ripped off. While Wikitravel's focus is on the destination, Wikidirections focuses on the journey itself. [more inside]
