Neighborhoods of San Francisco

An interactive map of neighborhoods in San Francisco, traced out with Neatline’s vector annotation tools on top of the lovely Stamen “Toner” layer. I liked how nearby neighborhoods often share parts of their names (eg, Pacific/Lower Pacific/Presidio → Heights, Outer/Central/Inner → Richmond, Outer/Central/Inner → Sunset), and played around with ways of minimizing the total number of words on the map by daisy-chaining together the shared terms with little schematic arrows.
