Map of New York

Software Engineer Haochi Chen recently wrote a quick script that downloaded the highest definition Google Map images for the New York City area, then seamlessly combined them together to create one ENORMOUS billion-pixel map image.

Map of New York created by stitching together images from the Static Maps API.

I cannot stress ENORMOUS enough… the full resolution photo on Flickr is 30720 pixels by 30720 pixels, making it about 170 megabytes.

If you ever wanted a map of New York City that you could print out to attach to the whole side of your building, nay block, download it here.
