Designing the whaam! style in Mapbox Studio | Mapbox

by sbrothier
Inspired by a Roy Lichtenstein original at the Walker Art Center, I decided to design the whaam! map. In his early career, Lichtenstein worked as a comic book artist which inspired his later work. I kept my whaam! style limited to four stylistic mainstays:

Designing the Swiss Ski style in Mapbox Studio | Mapbox

by sbrothier
Swiss maps have long been praised for their accuracy, quality, and beauty. Since 1938 the Swisstopo – Swiss Federal Office of Topography, has been producing maps for hikers, Alpinists, cyclists, planners, tourists, and explorers.

Improving OpenStreetMap with probe data | Mapbox

by sbrothier
We’re building a new data processing pipeline for analyzing GPS probe data streams. This infrastructure will let us improve the map in new ways and at huge scale. Here’s the first look at how it works. Streaming GPS tracks are overlaid against our streets data, allowing us to identify where there is activity, like people running or driving, but no trail or road data in our map. When we find a place like this, we queue it up for our data team to look at in to-fix, our open source micro-tasking tool. Once we verify that a path or street is missing, we add it to OpenStreetMap and our map is updated in under 10 minutes.

Beautiful Destruction: 11 Gorgeous Geologic Maps of Volcanoes | WIRED

by sbrothier (via)
IT'S NOT ALWAYS obvious what it is that scientists find beautiful about a graph, microscope slide, soil sample or some other aspect of their work. It just looks like numbers, blobs or dirt to the rest of us. But sometimes a scientific result or product is so visually appealing, anyone would want to hang it on their wall as art.
