Different Views of OpenStreetMaps

Stamen maps allow users to visualize geographical data in three different ways: toner maps (black and white, worldwide), terrain maps (US only), and watercolor maps.

For over a decade, Stamen has been exploring cartography with our clients and in research. These three maps are presented here for your enjoyment and use wherever you display OpenStreetMap data.

OpenStreetMap is a project utilizing the power of collaboration to create wiki-style maps with open geographical data (viewable, usable, editable). Data are gathered from a variety of sources, including individual GPS units, aerial photography, and copyright-free maps.
