You are here

You are here

I’m collecting images from around the world depicting ‘you are here’ marks or ideo locators at Flickr. I’m fascinated by this mapping in context, in particular the relationship to local physical space. This is mapping with a a point of view, and maps as direct interface to the world. The best example to date is from Seoul, where 3D cross sections of a metro station are directly related to the point at which you are looking at the map.

I appreciated the way the city of Bristol, back in 2001 used maps in its street.

Maps were created around the physical position of the user on the street…simple and very effective solution.
