The 8-Bit Cities project was an attempt to make a city feel "foreign yet familiar" by combining together lo-fi world maps with GPS and other geographically accurate data available today, to provide abstract sense of scale, urge for exploration and excitement [Camper, 2010]. The project was created on open source software, data packages and OpenStreetMap.
