Best Way to Plot Pedestrian Adventures: Austin's Atlas

Austin's Atlas is one of those projects that presents as humble and simple and slowly reveals itself to be hugely ambitious and amazing. As the name implies, maps are the thing, but the range is large. Its pedestrian guides are a good entry point; they aim to deepen our relationship with our surroundings with sort-of scavenger hunts for anything from street oddities and art to decorated trees to "voids," or hidden empty spaces. That's just the beginning; the Atlas features workshops, map-making tools, "mappy hours," and many other ways to think about what mapping – and Austin – is.
