Local bike maps on Mac desktops
I’ve been asked on several recent occasions – “Do you work in GIS?”
Nope. Unexpected question. Why?
“Well, you always have maps on your screen.”
The maps are courtesy of Satellite Eyes, a free Mac app I’ve been using to get myself a personalized bike/coffee/beer map wherever I am in the world. Pretty dang cool.
The map I use is OpenStreetMap’s OpenCycle, but you can select from a few options, including Bing Aerial, Mapbox, and Stamen. New styles can also be added through ThunderForest or another service if the API follows normal tile patterns.
So, what are you waiting for? Download Satellite Eyes and setup your own personal bike map today.
