OnionMap

OnionMap, Toronto (screencap)

OnionMap’s isometric maps of various world cities are somewhat disappointing: they’re essentially tourist maps that depict major landmarks, subway routes and the like. Nice enough — we don’t see very many examples of isometric mapping — but not very interactive. The maps are zoomable static images that do not show more detail at higher resolution. And they’re too small, showing only the cities’ downtowns (if that); it’s too easy to scroll off the map. These are the sorts of maps you’d find in brochures. Via La Cartoteca.
