Is This the Most Gorgeous Map Ever?


Oh man this is beautiful! Plane Finder has released a new Route Map that looks just all kinds of gorgeous.

The screenshot above doesn't do this map justice.You need to open up the map and then click on any of the airports displayed on the map - that's when the beauty happens. After clicking on an airport neon lines fly out from the airport to show all the destinations that you can fly to from that location.

It's a simple formula really:

 a styled map + animated polylines = poetry in motion

Very pretty, but seems to have incorrect info. There are currently no flights from Liverpool (UK) to Heathrow or Gatwick, for example. Most smaller airports in Scotland are missing.

Agree. I don't even know we can do such things with Google Maps :).

In Australia: Broome, Melbourne-Avalon, Alice Springs ...

I hope that my message finds you well .

We work for Saffronart, India’s largest auction house. We have currently launched The Story by Saffronart which brings together curated collections of hard-to-find, beautiful and significant objects. Essentially the idea behind this is that now one doesn’t have to wait for an auction to acquire these objects as they will be available for immediate sale every day. The collections include art, jewelry, maps, early-edition books, unique home accessories, rare watches & pens, unusual designed objects and memorabilia.

I’m not sure how you plan your content, but I thought you might be interested in a collection of magnificent old and rare maps we have on sale. Some of them include maps of India from (1525-1619), The German cartographer Sebastian Munster (1488-1552), A Venetian cartographer Jacobo Gastaldi (1500-1566) etc.
Do have a look at our website www.saffronart.com and let me know if this is of any interest to you.
