Street Art of Lisbon

Portuguese newspaper Expresso has created a Google Map showcasing the street art of Portugal. The map features the work of graffiti and street artists from all over the country.

The Mapa Interativo da Street Art Nacional is a simple but effective map with some neat custom touches. It uses the Google Maps API styled map feature to create a gray-scale background map. Clustered custom map markers are then placed on top of this base map. Spray can images are used for the individual locations and a numbered paint-splat image is used for the clustered markers.

As well as searching for street art by location on the map you can also search by artist name using the alphabetical index at the top of the map.
