Informal but useful maps that helps visitors navigate new areas.

Yumi Roth, a professor of sculpture at the University of Colorado, has an interesting ongoing project called Meta Mapa in which she asks locals of any place she visits to draw maps on her hands, detailing the routes to interesting places in that city. She then photographs the maps and prints them to develop a series of informal, yet useful maps that helps her and her team to navigate the city.
