Hong Kong recently published a digital guide with all sorts of useful maps and mapbooks freely available for download by its citizens and visitors. Beyond navigation, the maps provide rich information on public transportation options, public services, points of interest and more. The wealth of information is extremely useful and it strikes me how often valuable geographic data, especially from government agencies, is locked away in GIS systems when it holds so much potential value for the public. And it can be easily shared with the masses by providing access in any location and on any device with 100% free software and apps.
