Shane Hudson has written a nice article on 24 Ways which touches on an area I’ve been thinking a lot recently – preserving expression, longevity and thinking within Design. His article titled, Putting Design on the Map touches on the considerations for creating products, books, IOT’s by looking at the connections of the Digital and the Physical world.
A map does not just chart, it unlocks and formulates meaning; it forms bridges between here and there, between disparate ideas that we did not know were previously connected.Reif Larsen
His article predominantly focuses on Maps covering the technical considerations, Interface and differences with physical printed maps vs. online Maps, such as those from the Ordinance Survey, MapBox, Leaflet and Google Maps.
It is a good read.
