New Google Map

St. Louis Patina Google Map

I have been working on creating an interactive map on Google Maps. You can find it here. I have begun to map out each neighborhood in the city, and hopefully some day it will provide a link to pictures of the area in question. Feel free to explore my map of St. Louis’s neighborhoods (a work in progress) and comment and critique. I have mapped out neighborhoods from my perspective; in other words, what neighborhood do I feel I’m in when I’m on a particular street? Borders are always ambiguous, especially in a city, and I have consolidated some neighborhoods and eliminated others completely. Likewise, I have created neighborhoods that I believe have their own distinct character and deserve their own designation. The North Side’s neighborhoods are in shades of blue, the central corridor’s are in red, and the South Side’s are in green.

    Great map and a worthwhile project.I think you have a typo in the title for South Grand, though.I don’t remember which neighborhood the Gianellas live in, do you, by chance?

  2. Chris says:

    Ah, that’s the neighborhood I have labeled “Far South Grand.” I know many people who would give it other names, including “North Carondelet,” among others.

    Chris that is a very impressive map. How do you may areas like that in google? I would like to make some maps.

    Next time we hang out, I can show you. It’s relatively easy; you need to start by having a google e-mail account and then you can use google’s other new features.

    I do have a gmail account. That is how I was able to post here. I will check it out and see what I can figure out. Next time you see me I will probably be a proud father.

    Got a suggestion, Chris.How about you put a section in your sidebar for maps like this one. I had to search for it. Like a sucker.
