8-Bit Map of New York City

Brett Camper created an interactive 8-Bit Map of NYC using data from OpenStreetMap and now has a Kickstarter project to expand it to 15 other cities around the world.

I hope that these maps will evoke the same urge for exploration and abstract sense of scale that many of us remember experiencing on the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Commodore 64, or any other number of 8-bit microcomputers. Maps offer us visual architectures of the world, encouraging us to think about and interact with space in particularly constrained ways. Let’s set out on an 8-bit quest!
