We need to re-invent online/mobile maps. Who knew? But I do like this idea…

“…designers are toying with how time could be visualised on top of a traditional map by ‘spiraling out’ from the search area, so a search within central San Francisco would reveal a three-dimensional spiral into space that lets the user navigate historic data.”

I think we also need maps that forget, otherwise our augmented reality mapping is going to start to become even more cluttered with things we don’t need to know than ordinary maps already are.
