Geodata doesn’t have to be ugly. Stamen Design’s watercolored maps make Google Maps look flat and tired.
Play around to see the world a different way and each one starts looking like a work of art.
OpenMaps is a free iPhone application from IZE, Ltd. that can display map tiles from sources you configure.
These tiles are made available as part of the CityTracking project, funded by the Knight Foundation, in which Stamen is building web services and open source tools to display public data in easy-to-understand, highly visual ways.
