Blog Pick :: Bostonography
By: Phil Reville, M.Arch Candidate
I moved to Boston less than a year ago, and I can say that learning to navigate this small city has at times proven to be a big task. What has helped me “learn” this city however is not google maps, but more so an understanding of the nuances of neighborhoods, dynamics of a particular area, transportation routes, and other less seemingly obvious mapping utilities. Bostonography seeks to make visual these unique elements of Boston that have yet to be communicated through mapping.
Andy Woodruff and Tim Wallace, the two creators of Bostonography, have a passion for both the city of Boston and maps themselves. Bostonography offers them a chance to combine these passions and create some really unique and interesting maps. The duo also posts many impressive maps made by others, as well as some discussion of Boston-centric information in a non-map format here and there.
