Mappery For the love of maps

A compass globe map thing

This compass (or is it a globe?) is in the entrance to Jaffa port. It shows the distance and direction of a series of cities from Tel Aviv/Jaffa. You stand looking out at the sea and can see many of the cities surrounding you. The top pic is taken facing the sea and the one below was taken from the other direction because it does a bit more detail.

I like the way that the city markers run off the edge of the map and are embedded in the tiles surrounding it. The last two are Gibraltar and Tangiers.
