The CUNY Historical and Favorite Places Map was one of my first interactive web-platform mapping and visualization projects. As part of the “CUNY Maps of NYC” and the Futures Initiative’s Mapping the Futures of Higher Education across CUNY and NYC series of courses, students across CUNY’s 24 campuses contributed favorite and historical places. Users are able to navigate to the different campuses around New York City to see the favorite and historical places contributed by the students participating in the project.
The map was designed using CartoDB.
