Map² Zoomable Map
Google Maps would be ideal for travelling if it weren’t for the data requirements. But we’ve grown accustomed to interactive digital maps and avoid lugging around thick map pocketbooks like the plague. For this, there’s Map², the cleverest old school paper solution we’ve yet to encounter. Each square map focuses on one major city (including London, Paris, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Shanghai, amongst others) across 4 tiles; for a closer look, unfold the tile to zoom in on that particular fourth, or flip it over for a glance at that city’s entire transportation system. Plus, they make great mementos once marked and used up in ways that their digital counterparts never could.
