Pittsburgh Hand-Drawn Mapping Project

These are a few of my favorite things (Pittsburgh) from the Pittsburgh Hand-Drawn Mapping Project

I just came across this cool new tumblr that’s collecting Pittsburgh Hand-Drawn Maps.

Directions scribbled on backs on napkins, turn-by-turn Post-It notes, a sketch of the best sushi restaurants in the city — these reflect how we truly see Pittsburgh.

At the Pittsburgh Hand-Drawn Mapping Project, we’re collecting your drawings to build a living atlas to the city.

Exactly.  Pretty excited what comes of this project. Be sure to check out the smell map of someone’s bike commute, called Commutearoma. Brilliant.

Check out the Pittsburgh Hand-Drawn Mapping Project and submit a map!
