The Yat Map

The Yat Map was an attempt to capture the names of New Orleans’ various neighborhoods as known by the folk who live, work, and play in them. Starting from a blank Google Map, users were asked to enter a street address along with the name of the neighborhood that address exists within. The result is a map whose territorial borders align with, but by no means mirror, those of “official” neighborhood boundaries.
