Dumpster Map ChicagoYou don’t have to be a resident of Chicago to love the People’s Atlas Project. Through their website you can download a map of Chicago with nothing but the outline of the city, a spot for notes, and a blank legend box. It’s like a Thanksgiving turkey-coloring contest for adults—all you have to do come up with something to map. Chicago is just the latest city to be visited by the People’s Atlas Project—they’ve  done it in Syracuse, New York and Zagreb, Croatia.

Some maps are personal, others are political—and some are both.  

 To see the collection visit the People’s Atlas website.
