New map styles from Stamen Design

learnt today that Stamen Design have released new map styles for Open Street Map data. I really like the watercolor one, as it is quite different from what is usually seen on web maps. The other two are:

  • Toner: Very clean black & white
  • Terrain:  Features hill shading and natural vegetation colors

A Javascript API is provided in order to access the tiles. If you would like to roll your own maps (with TileMill, for example), the styling instructions are also available for Toner and Terrain.

PS: I have my own consultancy and love to work on interesting problems. I have helped several startups and established companies deploy innovative GIS and Data Engineering solutions. Check out some showcases of my work at If you have a project that we can collaborate on, then please contact me at
