Using these maps:
    * All maps are open editable! (For this you need to be logged in with a Google account, can be a fake one)
    * exports are available in .kmz (~Google Earth) and .gpx (~OsmAnd for Android/iOS)
    * The typology ("legend") is found below.




Typology

a -> "A spaces". most relevant, best to hang out, centers of city activity
b -> "B spaces". also relevant.
x -> places that might be cool and need to be checked out
c -> culture (museums, galleries, ...)
n -> nature (like forests / hills) or nature-culture (like public parks)
p -> friends
uni -> university / institute
shop -> place to buy food or something else (should be separated) <-- #TODO
eat -> supermarket / cheap place to eat
l / lib -> library with open access, a plug and internet
beach -> ...
music -> space to jam
EV -> escape vector (airport, shuttle spot, hitch-hiking spot, ...)
site / area / landmark-> noteworthy or recognizable spot
abandoned -> place to squat?
xxx -> party concert hall / club / pub
thl -> basic resources for anywhere (trans-hyperlocal) as defined on 🔗resources
fruit -> fruit trees + time to collect fruit

Concept: "Cognitive mapping" (Jameson)

via "Navigating neoliberalism" article: "This gets to the heart of what political theorist Fredric Jameson calls ‘cognitive mapping’. According to him, the left lacks cognitive mapping — the means to make our own world intelligible to ourselves through a situational understanding of our own position. Jameson draws upon the urban theorist Kevin Lynch, who argues (in his book, The Image of the City) that in designing urban spaces one must take into account how people navigate their way around cities. In encountering a new city, the individual is left without any cognitive map of the space and is forced to develop one through habit. As Lynch argues, the urban designer can assist this process by strategically situating landmarks and other easily recognisable symbols in order to provide the grounds for the development of a cognitive map."




Technical infrastructure

WHY GOOGLE MAPS?:
    Because self-hosting OSM is still not simple to do properly, and there's so little time.
    If you want to help out mail david@totalism.org please!
    Also see 🔗todos#____Migrate_maps_to_Open_Street_Maps.

KML BACKUP + EXPORT + CONVERT SERVICE:
    Developed as "cht-maps-export" and part of the 🔗workflow.
    Track all changes on the maps with git.
    You can download KMLs for all of the maps, or use the .GPX versions offline with OsmAnd (or example).




Next locations

So:
    Warsaw/PL, Bristol/UK, Lisbon/PT, Antwerp/BE,
    Torino/ITA, Bratislava/SK, Valencia/ESP, Athens/GR,
    Krakow/PL, Freiburg/DE, Groningen/NL,
    Zürich/CH, Copenhagen/DK, Granada/ESP,
    Gran Canaria/ESP, Tenerife/ESP,
    Linz/AT (<>Vienna,Leipzig<>Berlin!),
    Svalbard/NO

Again:
    Amsterdam/NL

EU Routes / Trails ideas

See 🔗trails.

Trans-Europe transit ("A to B") in all directions, done by car or hitch-hiking. Normal easy hitching speed is ~300km per day (with exit and entry), so trails are organised to include stops with distances like that.
