You Are Here project creates unconventional maps

When MIT Media Lab Professor Sep Kamvar moved from San Francisco to Cambridge, he set to learning about his new home. But he found the things he really wanted to know, weren’t on his maps. He wanted to know about the little things that make a city special, so he created You Are Here. The project’s goal is to create 100 maps of 100 cities, putting out one every day. So far they’ve created 90 maps, including noise complaints in New York, street trees in Portland, and a handful about Chicago. Sep Kamvar joins us to talk about the project.
