We’d like to introduce you to Bubble Wrap, the fresh new cartography from Mapzen. This signature map style joins Refill, Zinc, and Cinnabar and is featured in Eraser Map, our privacy-focused Android application. (We’d love for you to join our Android beta program — sign up here.)

Explore Bubble Wrap in this interactive map, and keep reading for a visual diary of our experiments, iterations, and outtakes.
