You know how I feel about maps. Here are three fun map-related things people have sent me this week.
1. Neighborhood Branding: Apparently, an artist has taken it upon him or herself to brand Chicago neighborhoods with appropriate typography.
2. The CTA vs. NYC: From Transit Maps, if you flip and rotate the CTA train map and lay it across Manhattan, eh… it kinda fits?
3. Demographics! If you want to get real fancy, spend some time with these population maps from Straight Dope Chicago. They track population movement by wealth and race from 1980 to 2009. See that little rich, white bubble that looks so out of place on the South Side? Oh heyyyyy, Hyde Park!
