Personal World Map

"Personal World Map" has been developed with the idea of giving users another perception of the world. Normally we measure distances between places in km (or miles) but in the Personal World Map these distances have been replaced by travel time and travel costs. These two factors can give a better indication of relative position between places than geographical distances.

More information about the Personal World Map can be found in the about section of the project.

The Personal World Map has been my final project for the study Media Design at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam.
