Solar Powered Maps Lead You Through Leeds

The City of Leeds has installed a network of solar powered, backlit street maps.

The maps are oriented to the direction you are facing and also show walking times. Maybe some day these things will have interactive touch screens so you can indicate where you want to go. Here is an image from the Leeds City Council via ITV News of the panel in (gloomy looking) daylight conditions.

For more information see the Leeds Virtual Newsroom.
