New! New! New!

Hello New York has gotten a fresh new design for the new year! I’ve been working on this redesign non-stop for the last four months and I have to say that it is one of the best things I have made. I hope you all like it as well (although, I’m sure 90% of you don’t go outside of your dashboards). As always if you see a bug, let me know.

The relevant item here is that—as pointed out—none of HNY’s subscribers will ever see the redesign. What is this, some kind of Zen one-hand-clapping exercise?

I can’t say I’m very taken by the selection of movie buildings—some are real, some are sets, some are just models that are never seen in full. But there is one big exception: the house in Mon Oncle is a fully-developed character unto itself.

How Online Mapmakers Are Helping the Red Cross Save Lives in the Philippines

This sounds rather breathless in its optimism—although the consequences might well warrant it—but the big picture of these kind of collaborative tools for geospatial information is quite impressive. And it’s not just in the case of humanitarian disasters: grassroots projects could benefit just as much from the ability to create these maps as a multinational rescue effort.
