As a San Francisco native and resident, I’ve accumulated a long list of local spots to share with visiting friends and family. These public spaces provide a more vibrant city experience and make up the authentic fabric of San Francisco (sorry, Pier 39!). Everyone has their own favorite hidden spots throughout the city that might include stairwells, parklets, murals, slides, and POPOS.
Good-looking maps used to be the domain of experts. That’s been changing quite a bit in the last few years, and it’s easier than ever now for developers to access mapping data (the recent State of the Map US conference was a great place to hear about this). Never content to leave well enough alone, we thought we’d kick this sideways a bit and make it easy for the rest of us to make some great stuff.
