The Spookiest Maps

On Friday I was so spooked out by the impending Zombie Apocalypse that I completely forgot to post about a couple of other Halloween flavored maps. So why not celebrate this bonus cartographic Halloween bonanza with this scary Mapbox Halloween Map.

This Mapbox Studio created map uses an appropriately themed color-scheme, with pumpkin colored seas and darkly ominous land features. Town and city map labels have also been updated to make them sound a little more haunted. You might also notice a few changes to some of the usual map icons.

Mapzen's 3d Building Map also features a rather scary Easter egg (or should that be Halloween ghost). Zoom in on New York on the map and you just might find a few pacmen ghosts hiding on the city streets.

Now who you gonna call?
