When you’re zoomed in close enough to the street maps on CityMaps, you’re shown the logos of the main companies on each street.

It’s currently limited to New York, San Francisco, and Austin, but imagine how it might be adapted — you want a coffee, your location pulls up a variety of coffee shop logos on-screen. Or perhaps you want sports stores, banks, restaurants…

Reminded me of the Logorama movie, and had me wondering how many Starbucks are in Manhattan. Check the maps on CityMaps.
