Turn left at McDonalds…City Map

City Maps is an interesting take on map making, as detailed in this article on Fast Company, using Logos as landmarks / wayfinding and where available pulling in photos and tips from Foursquare.

Reminding us of this oldie but goldie from a while back…

Foursquare animated

Wee Places takes your Foursquare checkins and animated them into an interactive map. Why?…… Why not?

Check out my animation here.

Nike Grid: London’s Your Gameboard

With more and more emphasis on social network games (Foursquare, Gowalla, MyTown) relying on the use of a smart phone or at least one with internet connection ability I’ve often thought there are a lot of people out there who don’t get a chance to play, this ones for you… Nike Grid

Race – Chase – Sprint – Dial!
Basically you play by logging in at a phone box (free phone) then score points by getting to another phone box in the same postcode in the quickest possible time. Simple and engaging, brilliant!
Not only is it a form of social gaming but also encourages running, its a win win!

But it appears it’s only a 24hr game starting 8pm on Friday 23rd April so you have got to be quick to claim your postcode!

Must also admit I am loving the Spooks style website to give it that underground/spy feel to the whole thing. Check it out here!
