Same Geography-Dozens of Viewpoints

As a cartographer, I often wonder how many different ways the same space can be represented. CloudMade is an organization that allows you to access web mapping content and tools. They have a large set of cartographic styles to color your world. Here are 15 different views of the same area in London using some of their styles.


Here is an animation I created using 29 styles. Click it for a more clear image - it will take you to my photobucket site.

All the styles can be seen on their style editor page. You can take these templates anywhere. Here are three views of Trenton, New Jersey using the "Emo Style" template.

Very interesting - will have to play around with this once I get onto profiling cities. Still on countries at the moment.
