mapping the future

Two recent posts featuring maps on A Daily Dose of Architecture caught my attention:

Maps of world cities crafted by geotagging photos, (the full set can be seen on Flickr) and Walhattan about the mapping the impact of Walmart from Design Observer.

I’m also really excited about the call for submissions the Third Coast Atlas.

3rd Coast Atlas is a platform for research and design initiatives that explore the urbanization, landscape, infrastructure and ecology of the Great Lakes Basin and Great Lakes Megaregion. 3CA was initiated in 2009 by Clare Lyster, University of Illinois, Chicago; Charles Waldheim, Harvard University, and Mason White, University of Toronto.

Over on Mason’s blog, there is a great project exploring the landscape of corn[starch] with cool maps and diagrams

Stay tuned for an upcoming post with maps by my students from this past semester…
