8-Bit Cities

Okay, so these maps might not be the most useful if you're trying to find directions, but they're pretty damn nifty nonetheless. As described on the website, the 8-Bit Cities project is "an attempt to make the city feel foreign yet familiar, smashing together two culturally common models of space: the lo-fi overhead maps of 1980s role-playing and adventure games, and the geographically accurate data that drives today's web maps and GPS navigation." Clever, no?
Thanks for sharing this link, Vijay!
