Updated: Aerial Photo Transit Map of Portland, Oregon — Now with Bus Routes!
Taylor Gibson’s aerial photo map of Portland’s rail and streetcar routes is one of the most popular posts ever on Transit Maps, so I thought I’d pass on this update to it, which now shows the bus network as well. The colours used match the official TriMet system map, although Taylor hasn’t shown peak hour-only services like the 51 up through Council Crest.
What this view really shows to effect is Portland’s grid-like bus network, which you can read more about (and learn why it’s so good) on Jarrett Walker’s Human Transit blog.

Whoa. Crazy aerials.

The iPad 3’s Amazing Urban Planning Feature…that No One is Talking About

The iPad 3 will have no home button!

The iPad 3 will have a retina display!

The iPad 3 will have a rocket booster…maybe not.

What feature should all urban planners be most excited about for the iPad 3?!

It’s a feature called C3, which creates the most amazing 3D maps ever. Period.

Apple purchased this technology back in October 2011. 

If you’ve never seen it, check out this video.

Can you imagine what urban planners can do with a feature like this?
