Urban Mapping is a San Francisco-based technology company that produces data and geographic research tools. But they also market a small series of way cool city maps that set a cartophile’s heart afflutter.
The Panamap series utilizes a brilliant, patented lenticular printing process that shows multiple layers of information in a single space by rotation of the viewing angle. The award-winning New York and Chicago maps show subway lines, landmarks, neighborhoods, a street grid, museums, tourist sights and restaurants.
The maps are only available at a few museum shops at the moment, but wider distribution should be in the offing for this nifty map series.
