Wow! This is a clever map of Vancouver neighbourhoods that makes me wish I had enough time to replicate it for Victoria -- after the last few months of house-hunting, I've become pretty familiar with all the pet names for the little corners of this city.

This map was created by Stephanie Vasher who admits she lifted the idea from orkposters.com who publish a series of US city neighbourhood maps.

Props to Darren Barefoot for blogging this first.

This *is* cool. Those neighbourhoods are all official designations, though. I don't know if Victoria has officially-designated neighbourhoods of the same type. The Geography library might have that info (which I'm sure you've already considered).

I wonder if the creator used a particular program to cram all those letters into the regions.
