This map shows, in one view, everything in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s collection. Stamen used interactive mapping technology but applied it to a map of the collection itself.

What we made

The project was built using Stamen’s own Modest Maps library, an open-source toolkit that allows designers and developers to quickly build and design zoom-and-pan maps. In this case, instead of navigating in and out of and around a geographic map, you move through a landscape made of artworks, organized by when they were purchased by the museum.
