The London Buskers Map
Busk in London is a really well designed mapped guide to where street performers can busk in London. The map shows which boroughs have accepted the Busk in London code of conduct and the location of designated busking pitches throughout the city.
I really like the simple and elegant design of the Busk in London map. The brightly colored guitar picks, which are used to mark designated busking pitches, are a nice touch. The responsive page header is also a neat feature. Notice how when you open an information window near the top of the map the page header animates off the page, leaving more room for the map.
The only flaw in the design is that the header can obscure the zoom buttons on the map. This would be easy to overcome by switching the location of the zoom buttons to the right-hand side or the bottom of the map.
