Personalized Blankets & Mapkins Created From Open Source Map Data


San Francisco-based Nikki Gunn Rodenbeck of Soft Cities creates personalized fleece blankets and cotton “mapkins” napkins from customized data.

…In collaboration with Stamen Design,, and Cloudmade (under the creative commons license SA-by-SA), we’re using open source data provided by OSM to design (or modify in the case of Midnight Commander) the style of the map, including all the city infrastructure, land details and icons. So we feature colorful, fun versions created by Stamen’s design hotshot Geraldine Sarmiento. I mean, why shouldn’t rivers in a candy colored world look like rainbows?
