TIMESCAPES (http://www.localprojects.net/ts/ts_demo.shtml ) : Over thirty-five new digital maps of New York were custom created for the film, demonstrating the delicate interplay between the land, water, transportation and commerce that produced the immense metropolis that is New York today.

Here's a fun tongue-in-cheek Graphic Standards Manual to help you design like collage artist/activist Barbara Kruger (juxtaposing text with imagery).
