Parallel – interactive mapping & data visualisation

Parallel are an interactive mapping and data visualisation business. They have produced a fantastic resource using an 1852 map of York, which they have stitched together to produce an interactive map where you can overlay the current street layout and navigate your way through the city on an historic tour using the GPS location on your mobile.

Try it out on your mobile – it’s amazing.

You will also be able to pick up a map from our office, produced by the Historic Towns Trust, that provides a wealth of additional historic information to accompany this.

Parallel’s mapping projects
Interactive maps and exploratory exercises investigating the capabilities of data-driven Mapbox GL JS vector maps and 3D rendering. Free resource for geography students in UK schools.
