The Russian Doll of Maps
Displayce is a series of visual map experiments created using the Google Maps API. Each of the experimental views in Displayce uses a number of Google Map instances on one page to create an experimental map pattern.
For example, 'foci' (pictured above) overlays a number of Google Maps on top of each other. Each map instance shows a view of the same location but each map has a consecutively lower zoom level.
Displayce includes four different map experiments all creating a different visual effect from stitching together different map instances to create different patterns. You can enter any location in the world into each of the experiments and, if you like the resulting experimental map, you can grab the URL for the view and share it with your friends.
