Viewing the Emergent City and Its People

Mapnificent -a time-based transit map

STEFAN WEHRMEYER, a 23-year-old German programmer, has developed a Google Maps application called Mapnificent (harhar). It’s pretty cool: it shows you the places in your city that you can reach in a given amount of time using public transport. This does not yet work in South African Cites , but is still an interesting application of already existing cloud network i.e. Google Maps  and the programming API has lots of potential for creating your own applications
