Hurricane Sandy dealt a major blow to the New York City metro area. The website, Manhattan Past, notes the historic landscape pattern inherent in the city’s modern day evacuation routes. Landscape memory, recording the history of the landfill that created the Manhattan of today. Yesterday’s newfound real estate, today’s and tomorrow’s flood inundation zone, thanks to climate change.
Another key map comes from the Angela Fritz’s WunderBlog on the Weather Underground site. Record warm Atlantic waters fueled Sandy.
Like the Smells of New York City or the Sound Map of Toronto. Those maps that capture experiential qualities of places. Currently, the London Museum is featuring a small exhibition of hand-drawn maps solicited from Londoners in a call on the Londonist website in February of this year. There’s a nice blog post on it here.
Of the 11 maps in the exhibition, “Loos of London” has captured a lot of attention. There’s an extensive post on the map and its creator, Paula Simoes, here.
