The Zoomable Paper Map
I’ve been traveling a fair amount lately, and to places I’ve never been before. Even though Trouville, Honfleur and Lyon (posts forthcoming) are all in France – where my iPhone works and has data – I find that I still cling to paper maps whenever possible. While I do know how to disconnect, I do love to take pictures, and now have the skill to wear down an iPhone5 battery in just 4 hours(!), so paper maps are usually more practical than finding an outlet to recharge.
When I was in Lyon with my parents last week I couldn’t help but notice how much the tourism office maps screamed “tourist” – they were big and awkward to fold, in other words not very practical. As soon as I saw these Zoomable Maps on Paper on Kickstarter by Anne Stauche I knew this was my kind of project. Check out the video below to see these maps in action.
Thanks to Tina for the tip! :)
