From a typographer's point of view, this is an incredable image! Micro type being used as a replacement for lines to show roads?...genius! I'm suprised it hasn't been thought of before. A beautiful typographic way to represent a city.

I often wonder about how streets get named. Perhaps there is a Moon Street, Moon- I found a lilac street in San Francisco and that delighted me. It was a tiny street and not a lilac bush to be seen either. Which goes to show how strange it is. Perhaps the street was named for someone's lover, or maybe once upon a time a scraggly little lilac tree did grow there. Or perhaps the Victorian Houses on it were all purple at one time. Or lilac was the city manager's favorite color. You see- once you start this sort of speculation it never ends. there are usually logical reasons for numbers; but names are quite something else.

Whenever I see any map I often how was the naming of streets done in old times. The map framework of these streets is simple amazing. Gives you a great idea of your destination thus reducing the time and money. A great invention indeed.
