This weeks linking the site may be a flashback to the days of cracker jacks for you, as Panamap builds on a technique which could be find in one of the prizes. You may recall when you would get cracker jacks there would be a prize, of course over the years the quality of the prizes diminished but one of the items which I recall was a little piece of paperboard which when you moved it would change what it showed. Panamap is basically the same premise, a map which by shifting it a little bit will change to a different view.
At this time, there are only two maps available in the Panamap format. These maps of New York and Chicago show you the street map, subway /"L" system , as well as the neighborhoods and landmarks in each city. An example of how Panamap works may be found on their website.
Using technology to help elminate the needs for additional maps and making them less confusing could be interesting moving forward. One question I have is how well will they hold up to wear and tears as well as the ability to throw them in a pocket to look less obvious.
