Amazing map tiles by Stamen

I think I'm probably going to print these up, for wall-art, they're so beautiful.

This is map-tiling imagery, from Stamen Design for use in applications (like the stuff Maggie and her co-workers do, or like, flickr's photo maps, or nextbus.com ... anything like that) where you'd want a lot of data, and to be able to scroll around on it.

You use this stuff when you switch from "satellite view" to "map view" to "topological view" ... this stuff is free replacement tiles. Like, "beautiful, interesting view"
