Maps Projects

collection of cultural map projects

During the Coding Da Vinci Hackathon 2016, I've explored historical maps of Hamburg. This eventually led to the Chronoscope Hamburg to browse through time and space in the area of Hamburg.

On this page you can find some other projects dedicated to historical maps and urban culture.
