Music Map

The Music Map, created by Constantine Valhouli, started out as a musical mapping of New York based on the long “List of songs about New York City” on Wikipedia. Valhouli turned the list into a spatial database instead, with many links to songs on YouTube, and thus rendering the information much more accessible, interactive and interesting. Relying on Google Maps and the information on Wikipedia, a map like this that visualizes an otherwise tedious list is a straightforward, free and easy way to approach mapping as a tool to organize knowledge. The Music Map is expanding to other cities, and Valhouli has not stopped there, having created other interesting maps about New York.
