marimonda – Map

About my imaginary map:

Something that is fascinating to me is the idea of fabricating false information to create a realistic person based on specific facts of information, such as names, addresses, coordinates and other identifiers.

This is what I came up with: (LINK TO PROJECT)

Technical process:

To create this, I tried to emulate the randomness of city streets by  iterating through alternating paths with different cases determined by chance so that the structure of the city is erratic, yet slightly linear and organized (much like the Andean city in the image above!). These paths all start at at the origin of where the user clicks, this is also the point that marks the specific location of the constructed person. I also created banks of first names, last names, cities (made up for prefixes and suffixes) to create their random identifiers.
