The 3D Graffiti Map

StreetArtifacts is an interactive map which documents and virtually displays street art in a number of global cities. The map uses textured 3D scans to allow users to view examples of street art as either 3D photogrammetry models or displayed in Augmented Reality mode. 

Currently StreetArtifacts has mapped examples of street art in New York, Portland and Karachi. Choose one of these three featured cities and you can view an interactive map on which small yellow map markers display the locations of captured street art. To view the 3D model of an archived work of street art you simply need to click on its map marker.  If you select the AI option you can also view the model in augmented reality on your smartphone.

You can take a virtual tour of street art in Argentina on Google's Street Art project. The Street Art website provides guided tours of amazing graffiti in cities around the world, including a wonderful audio guide to the graffiti of Buenos Aires in Argentina. The Talking Walls of Buenos Aires tour uses Google Maps Street View imagery to introduce you to some of the city's best street artists and their works of art.

The Talking Walls of Buenos Aires takes you on a guided tour around graffiti in three of the capital's neighborhoods; Villa Crespo, Colegiales and Barracas. You can explore the artwork in each of the tours up close using Google Maps Street View. Each of the artworks also includes an audio guide, which provides information on the location, the featured street artist and the individual work of art.
