Vector-based maps

Ran into this interesting project out of MIT. Instead of taking image tiles like Google maps, it renders real-time maps in HTML5 and a custom styling language (like CSS and JSON combined) called GSS (Geographic Style Sheets). You will have to use Firefox 3.5 or Safari 4+.

Check out the project page:


Refreshing to see a new approach for browser-based maps. We should definitely look to Cloudmade API as well.
