Fun with Polymaps and CloudMade

Another one from over at Read Write Web, from their ReadWriteHack channel.

Sometimes you need a map and the standard maps don’t fit the bill. That means you need to make your own map. Luckily, this can be done online so put away your crayons and construction paper.

Let’s take a look at using Polymaps with CloudMade.

There’s a map for that

Polymaps provides you with a JavaScript library that can be used to create unique maps for your own needs. We’re going to do what we tend to do a lot around here at RWH… we’re going to add bacon.

First, we’ll be using the CloudMade example showing San Francisco with a historical map overlay.

This could be quite a cool tool for editorial if they need to create a map overlay for a story.
