Urban Pandas

An adorable new campaign for the Tokyo Zoo uses geomapping, challenging users to explore the city via bike or walking, creating animals along the way of their routes. Through twitter, visitors request which animals they’d like to see, and a team of cartographers trace and upload routes to the Tokyo Zoo Project website. Rider/walkers can follow the somewhat complex paths of a panda, giraffe, elephant, seal, and more. The routes include fun markers along the way, highlighting winding streets, beautiful gardens, and inviting cafes.
