Stamen has been working with the underlying tile layers that most maps are based on and have found ways to greatly enrich the amount of data that can be displayed on an interactive internet-based map/data visualization.

We’ll show recent Stamen work with data and cities that will shed light on cutting-edge advances in the field. We can’t say exactly what we’ll have done by then (March is a long ways away for a small fast-moving studio like ours) but based on prior experience with ETech we think the industry will find it of interest.
