YouCity’s New York map

May 5th, 2009

YouCity‘s New York map is what I always wanted to make in SimCity, but more so. You can browse around the map on their homepage.

    Very neat and totally impressive. Looks like they modeled every bagel stand. But is it useful? I can’t read street names unless I’m super zoomed in.

    Useful? Honestly I hadn’t considered the intent of the thing. I see they want it to be a kind of social networking hub, so I suppose it’s mostly intended for locals, who already mostly know their way around.

    All I know is: if it had a Godzilla button and a street layout tool, I’d never leave.

    I just found the “Road” setting under the “2D/3D” button, which overlays a road map with larger text. In case you need one.
