Map Art

Speaking of cartography (we were – it was just a while ago), the rather awesome website lets you make your own beautiful aerial imagery using OpenStreetMap data. Here's an interactive view of the Craven Road area – click to zoom and drag to navigate!

And here are two map images, one in Stamen's "Watercolor" style, and the second in "Toner":

The peninsula of Ashbridge's Bay Park, the parabola of the railway, Eastern Avenue's curve up into Kingston Road, and the 90-degree bend of Lakeshore Boulevard into Woodbine Avenue all become unique graphic designs when you look at them this way. Thanks, geography!
