In Barcelona have set a huge interactive map of the city

The reason for this event is the celebration of the tercentenary of the end of the siege of Barcelona in September 1714 during the war, during which Catalonia lost its independence.

The map made using the latest mobile technology, located in the Avenue Lluís Company in the city park Ciutadella. Through this interactive map you can virtually move to Barcelona on the 18th century, comparing what was the city three hundred years ago and what it is in modern times.

The map shows the main touristic attractions of the city.

Equipment specially designed for mobile phones and tablets will allow anyone to make a map “alive” and take part in the installation.

The area of the original map is about 200 square meters. It was needed for its production a year, during which specialists cartographers gathered information from historical sources for its further playback on the map. Interactive map painted on the asphalt of the Avenue Lluís Companys and from today it is open to the public. For the project was used a special coating which is resistant to different weather conditions, with the ability to accommodate 100 people at the same time without having to move from one place to another. These dimensions and characteristics have made an interactive map of Barcelona the biggest in Europe.

At first glance it may seem that the map is only a mosaic of many small plans of the city, but if you look good, it becomes clear that this is not the case. A unique project, which cost was about 55,000 euros, allows in a virtual form to see and compare the modern Barcelona with what it was three hundred years ago.

On October 1, the map will be available for mobile applications with operating systems Android or IOS, which will offer users various options for more information and photos. To see the options it would be necessary to stay on the map in the area of interest or attraction, and hover over it with your mobile phone. This application was named “Mapa Tricentenari BCN”.
