Why we love it

We count on maps to show us where things are, of course. When a map tries to show everything at once, it can be difficult to see anything at all. This map avoids clutter by clustering locations and inviting us to zoom in for more details. We love the clean interface, the fact that you can find information in just a few clicks, and the option to filter by category. Tennis (maps) anyone?

Why it works

You can click symbols to see venue details or find venues ordered by date along the side panel. The basemap is aerial imagery—actual pictures of the earth’s surface—so you can discover venue trivia such as whether they play on clay, grass, or a hard court. This map works because it uses logical icons to limit the amount of words and create a strong visual style.
