The Vanishing Point

Posted in maps by joshmehler on April 6, 2010

A story appeared on the CBC (that’s the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for all you non-Canadians) yesterday about two men who were caught sneaking around in the Toronto sewage system; turns out, they’ve been doing this kind of spelunking/mapping for years. Check out their website here for some interesting maps and photos– I’m really enjoying their thinking about spaces that are “vanishing” from official city maps.
