The Startup Streets of San Francisco
Startups Streets San Francisco is a CartoDB road map of the Californian city in which all the roads are renamed for the city's largest startup companies.
The map isn't based on the location of San Francisco's startup companies but on the level of funding of each company. The companies with the biggest funding are assigned to the biggest San Francisco streets and the funding levels are based on data from Crunchbase.
Another map from CartoDB visualizes the same data in an entirely different way. The Startup Buildings of San Francisco uses the heights of buildings to show the level of each startup's funding.
The colors on the map relate to the number of startup companies residing in the building. The darker the color the less companies in the building. Therefore the darker, taller buildings are home to the most well funded companies. You can click on individual buildings to view the companies residing there.
