Mapping the City that Never Sleeps
Patricio Gonzalez Vivo has created a beautiful Tangram map based on the art of Ryoji Ikeda. The Ikeda Map is a beautiful black & white map, illuminated with the animated lights of road traffic and lights shining from the 3d building windows.
Mapzen's Tangram mapping platform is a library for creating 2D & 3D maps using WebGL. One of the main advantages of Tangram is the ability to style all aspects of the map to create really stunning looking individual maps.
If you like the Ikeda Map then you might also like this Cross Hatch map (pictured). Other Tangram maps include the Lego Style map, made out of colored plastic brick textures, the Tron Map, the Day / Night Map and Tangram Patterns.
