Carmelo Anthony's Life on Google Maps

The Melo Express was created to celebrate the life and career of basketball player Carmelo Anthony and, coincidentally, to sell a few pairs of Jordan Melos.

The application features a styled Google Map of New York with a number of videos in which Melo talks about his life and basketball playing career. The map also functions as a neat store locator. Dotted around the map are locations in New York where you can purchase Nike's basketball range of footwear.

The use of the Google Maps Styled Maps function is pretty effective in this map, especially if you zoom right in on the map. The Google Maps 3d buildings look particularly striking in this chosen color scheme.
