US National Parks, as a Subway Map

Sierra Club one of the major US grass-roots environmental organization created cool subway-style map of the U.S. National Parks for its Facebook page. It’s very simple, not to scale, nor is there an actual mass transit system connecting all these parks, but still it’s fun. “How many stops have you made?” you can read bellow the map. Playing with ‘the convention’ is something that is need in cartography of XXI century.

If the WP8 will be highly compatible with Windows 8 tablets and PCs, I think I will buy one. But this is not why I’m mentioning this topic. During the press conference Nokia presented as well their Location-Based augmented reality app – City Lens.

The idea of augmented reality has been already around for several years but was always rather experimental than reality useful. It was linked with both technological constraints and lack of data resources. Whether you like Nokia or not you cannot deny that they’ve got both. If you check out the video below you can see that this is social discovery app with based on Nokia – Navteq location information. Finally cool usage of Nokia’s Location Platform.
