Horizonless 3D Maps of Manhattan

Well, Have you see 3D horizonless maps? Here and There is a map of Manhattan where near by buildings appear in 3D but the distant objects appear with a twist. As the model bends from sideways to top-down in a smooth join, more distant parts of the city are revealed in plan view. This is more intuitive because the distant objects will not be much visible on a normal planar way. Here, you can easily make out the whereabouts of distant point of interests and Horizonless Maps are a new way to look at 3D maps. Below map will give you clear picture of what I’m talking about.

I certainly welcome their Bangalore version :)
